Garments Association Takes Legal Action Against EU Over EBA Suspension

The Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia has filed court action against the E.U. seeking to reverse the bloc’s partial suspension of trade benefits over human rights violations.

According to a document in the E.U.’s official journal dated August 31, the association brought the action to the bloc’s court of justice on July 16, pushing to annul the decision to partially withdraw the “Everything But Arms” deal.

The association alleges that the suspension “violates the principle of proportionality and the requirement of consistency between the Union’s policies and activities,” according to the document.
