Judges La Pergola (President of the Chamber), Wathelet, Edward, Jann (Rapporteur) and Sevón
||11 January 2001
European Community - Free movement of goods - Customs duties - Suspension of recovery of a customs debt - Appeal to judicial authority - Whether power to suspend conferred exclusively on customs authorities - Council Regulation (EEC) 2913/92, arts 243, 244, 245.
Article 244 of Council Regulation (EEC) 2913-92, establishing the Community Customs Code, was to be interpreted as meaning that it conferred the power to suspend implementation of a contested decision exclusively on the customs authorities. However, that provision did not limit the power of the judicial authorities seised of a dispute pursuant to art 243 of that Regulation to order such a suspension in order to comply with their obligation to ensure the full effectiveness of Community law.
