Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK)
The Court of First Instance annulled the Decision 2002/460/EC of the Council, in so far as it concerns the PKK, because of the absence of any reasoning expressly appearing or provided immediately thereafter to the applicant. So, the applicant was not placed in a position in which it is able to understand, clearly and unequivocally the reasoning of the EU institution. By doing so, the Council has infringed applicant's right to defence.
