A European response to the non-respect by the
Libyan State of the European Court decisions
One of the key elements of international relations, trade and commerce is the mutual
respect of law, contracts and court decisions.
On October 1, 2015, the website of the Libyan Investment Authority published an official communiqué referring to its good investments in Italy. However, the Libyan State which controls the Libyan Investment Authority (LIA)
does not respect its sentencing at first instance and on appeal by the Italian and Belgian courts.
Today, the lawyers of two italian companies and a non-profit organization managed by the Prince Laurent of Belgium launched the difficult procedure of seizure of the Libyan investments in the Italian groups Eni and Finmeccanica
As Libya is linked with the EU through the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) this case is of a great interest
for the EU as a whole. Therefore the Italian lawyers and representatives of the EU institutions
will brief the press corps on
