Swedish EDRi-member DFRI (Föreningen för digitala fri- och rättigheter) has asked the president of the European Parliament about a question from the Court of Justice of the European Union to the Commission that, according to a Commission spokesperson, made the Commission withdraw its referral of ACTA to the Court.
The Commission has stated that "the question asked by the Court of Justice as well as the letter of the Commission of 20 December 2012 have been served also on the European Parliament."
DFRI board member Andreas Jonsson commented that "without the Court's question we cannot understand why the Commission decided to withdraw its ACTA case". Therefore "without the Court's question there can be no proper closure of the ACTA dossier, and that's not a good start for other negotiations on the material ACTA was covering" concluded Jonsson.
