European Court of Justice overturns EU-Morocco free-trade accords

The European Union’s second highest court has annulled EU free-trade accords with Morocco, Qazet.az informs referring to Bloomberg.

In a ruling on September 29, the EU tribunal said it quashed political-level decisions on a pact amending the tariff preferences granted to products of Moroccan origin and, also, the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership Agreement.

But the court said the effects of those decisions would be maintained over 'a certain period' partly in order to legal certainty over the EU’s international commitments.
