Cypriot judge elected as EU Court’s Chamber President

CYPRIOT JUDGE Savvas Papasavvas has been elected by his peers in the EU General Court as Chamber President for the next three years.

The General Court is a constituent court of the EU Court of Justice, which hears actions taken against the EU institutions by individuals and member states. Until December 2009, it used to be known as the Court of First Instance, from which appeals on points of law would go to the EU Court of Justice. It is currently made up of 28 judges, one from each member state of the EU.

On Wednesday, the General Court elected its President and Vice-President, along with eight Chamber Presidents who would preside over benches of three or five judges responsible for hearing cases.

Papasavvas was elected by his fellow judges as Chamber President for a three-year period. He first joined the General Court in 2004 for a six-year period which was renewed in 2010.
