Five complaints filed against Italy in EU court in 2012

Brussels, March 6 - Five complaints were filed against Italy in 2012 for violating European Union law, according to statistics released by the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg on Monday. The number continues a downward trend that began a couple of years ago. There were seven complaints filed against Italy in 2011, six in 2010 and 16 in 2009. Italy was convicted of violating EU law three times in 2012. Italian judges issued 65 preliminary rulings out of a total of 404 presented by EU-country judges. Italian judges are outpaced only by German judges on how often they seek recourse at the Luxembourg court.
