Press/Media: Expert CommentPopular

Description

Prof. Dimitry Kochenov is Professor of EU Constitutional Law and Citizenship at University of Groningen, the author of Citizenship and the former chairman of the IMC. In this exclusive interview, he illustrates that the European Commission’s opening of infringement procedures against Malta and Cyprus on grounds that their CIPs are in breach of EU law and the principle of “genuine links” is not only legally groundless but also an absurd form of politically motivated bullying that goes against the values of the EU and showcases a flagrant abuse of power by the Commission.
