'Commission of the European Communities v Sweden' [2009] (C-249/06) and 'Commission of the European Communities v Austria' [2009] (C-205/06) (European Court of Justice, 3 March 2009)

Abstract: Details of two separate judgements delivered by the European Court of Justice (ECJ) on March 3, 2009, in the 'Commission of the European Communities v. Sweden' [2009] (C-249/06) and 'Commission of the European Communities v. Austria' [2009] (C-205/26) cases are presented. The Court ruled that Austria and Sweden had breached obligations under article 307 of the 'Treaty Establishing the European Community' (EC Treaty) by continuing to maintain the bilateral investment treaties (BITs) entered into with third party countries before their accession to the European Union (E.U.), thus creating incompatibilities with E.U. law on capital movements.
