EDITO the OFFICI@L – no. 73

Dear readers,

We are pleased to welcome you to this first issue of the year 2022. We are happy to inaugurate this month our brand-new family law column, in partnership with Candice FASTREZ of PERSPECTIVES law firm, who will share her expertise in this area with you every two months. You will find the usual Belgian law column next month!
For the first edition of this collaboration, we will focus on the treatment of social benefits received by parents who are officials or other servants of the European Union in the event of separation.
This issue will also be taken up and illustrated in the case law section, with a judgment of the EU General Court handed down on 21 December last.
In the focus section, we will deal with the independence of European officials and other agents, particularly with regard to the prevention of conflicts of interest.

Finally, the “Human Rights” section will deal with a judgment concerning another case of adoption against the mother’s will, this time against Italy.
We wish you an excellent reading!
