The EU opens a procedure against Germany for the ECB – Ultima Ora

(ANSA) – BRUSSELS, JUN 09 – The Commission has opened an infringement procedure against Germany for violation of the primacy of EU law, as well as respect for the jurisdiction of the EU Court, because on May 5, 2020 the German Constitutional Court declared “ultra vires” the ECB (Pepp) securities purchase program, beyond the scope of its competences. According to Brussels, the German court “deprived a ruling of the EU Court of Justice of its legal effects in Germany, violating the principle of the primacy of EU law”. (HANDLE).
