Question for written answer P-000107-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Miltiadis Kyrkos (S&D)

 Subject:  Compliance check in land registry Case C-601/10
 Answer in writing 

In connection with my previous questions (E-002016/2017 and P-002977/2018) concerning the non-compliance of the national authorities with Commissioner Bieńkowska’s letter of 28.6.2016, it should be noted that the Commissioner in question in her answer to Question P-002977/2018 asserts that: ‘The Commission is still examining the degree to which the measures notified by Greece for its compliance with the Court's judgment in Case C-601/10 have been implemented’. This is seven years after the ECJ judgment of 27 October 2011 in Case C-601/10.

Unfortunately, the continuation of the examination after the definitive expiry of the deadline for compliance on 29 July 2016 is limited to the interpretation of rulings by national courts in the case in question, which are following instructions from the national authorities under scrutiny, failing in their duty to examine whether the notified compliance measures are being implemented and disregarding the recent case-law based on the ECJ judgment of 4 October 2018 in Case C-416/17.

This approach to the compliance check allows the concessionaire to claim that exemption of that concessionaire and other parties involved, by four irrevocable exculpatory acts, from summons by criminal courts, which have omitted to submit a preliminary ruling under Article 267 TFEU, relieves the national authorities of the obligation to comply.

Will the Commission say:
1. What action has it taken to prevent the abovementioned attempt to divert the compliance check?
2. How does it assess the above views of national authorities on the article 260 TFEU procedure, also taking into account the points outlined in my previous question?
