European Union Freedom of movement. A Bulgarian national was prohibited from leaving Bulgarian territory under domestic law on account of a debt owed to a legal person. He sought the annulment of the order on the basis of his right to move and reside freely within the European Union. The Court of Justice of the European Union interpreted EU law as precluding a domestic law restricting the freedom of movement solely on the ground a person owed a legal person an unsecured debt exceeding a statutory threshold. However, it was only prohibited in exhaustively listed circumstances under domestic law.
