ECJ clarifies rules on bringing sanctions cases on behalf of deceased applicants

The Court of Justice held this month in Case C-505/16 P Olga Yanukovych v Council & Commission that the General Court had been right to reject an application for annulment seeking to annul the re-listing of Viktor Yanukovych, son of the former President of Ukraine, on the EU’s Ukraine misappropriation sanctions, after he had died.  Viktor Yanukovych’s widow Olga Yanukovych had tried to continue the application for annulment on his behalf after his death but the ECJ held that she had not done so in the procedurally correct manner and the application was inadmissible.
