Pleas in law and main arguments

In support of the action, the applicant relies on two pleas in law.

The applicant submits in this connection that there was a breach of the right to good administration guaranteed by Article 41(1) and (2)(a) and (c) of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union (‘the Charter’), since the defendant did not proceed, in his view, with the proper care requiring it rigorously and impartially to examine all the relevant facts of the applicant’s case.

2.

Second plea in law, alleging breach of the right to property

The applicant submits on this point that there was a breach of the right to property guaranteed him by Article 17(1) of the Charter and Article 1 of Protocol No 1 to the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, consisting in the fact that, as a result of the breach of the right to good administration, the contested acts limiting the applicant’s right to property were adopted with no legal grounds and contrary to the conditions set out in Article 52(1) of the Charter.
