Two new judges have been appointed to the General Court of the European Union following a formal swearing in ceremony on 27 October.

Krisztián Kecsmár, from Hungary, and Romania's Ion Gâlea replace Zoltán Csehi and Octavia Spineanu-Matei, who have both resigned.

The term of office of both judges was due to expire on 31 August next year.

The General Court of the European Union is part of the top EU court, the European Court of Justice (ECJ), which is also based in the Grand Duchy. Some cases are heard in this court before being passed on to the ECJ.

The General Court was due to gradually increase from 28 judges to 56 from February last year, giving each EU country two judges instead of one. Following the UK’s exit from the EU, the court will now have 54 judges.
