European Union – Freedom of establishment. The Court of Justice of the European Union gave a preliminary ruling deciding, among other things, that the deposits excluded under point 7 of Annex I to Directive (EC) 94/19, as amended by Directive (EC) 2009/14, were listed exhaustively in that provision, so that the member states could not provide, in their national law, for other categories of depositors who were not covered, in terms of the functions carried out, by the concepts listed in that point, in order for the exclusion from the deposit-guarantee to be applied to them.
