CASE COMMENTS: STATE AID – FRANCE – JUDICIAL LIQUIDATION – RECOVERY

Recovery: The French Administrative Supreme Court clarifies the litigation regarding illegal State aid granted to an undertaking in judicial liquidation (CELF)

In a judgment dated 5 April 2019, the Conseil d'État ruled out the recognition of the absolute impossibility of recovering State aid illegally paid to a company placed in compulsory liquidation. In the present case, the company Mandataires Judiciaires Associés, acting in its capacity as liquidator of the Centre d'exportation du livre français (CELF), applied to the Paris Administrative Court for annulment of the writ of collection issued against it in respect of interest accrued from 1982 to 25 February 1989 on aid paid to CELF. The case thus marks the epilogue to the well-known CELF saga, the genesis of which can be traced in the first point of the judgment.
