Judgment of the General Court of the EU in the case Al Assad v Council (T-202/12)
On 12 March 2014, General Court of the EU rendered its Judgment in the case T-202/12 Al Assad v Council.
The General Court confirms the entry of Mrs Bouchra (aka Bushra) Al Assad, sister of Bashar Al Assad, President of Syria, on the list of persons subject to restrictive measures taken against Syria. Despite the death of her husband (Deputy Chief of Staff of the Syrian regime), the family link between Mrs Al Assad and her brother is sufficient for the Council to be able to regard her as being linked to the leaders of Syria.
