Rome, November 27 - Italy feels "great
satisfaction" with its court victory Tuesday regarding the
languages European Union job announcements are published in,
Foreign Minister Giulio Terzi said.
Rome was successful in its petition to the European Court
of Justice against the publication of job announcements in just
three languages - English, French, and German - in the European
Union's Official Journal.
The court ruled that that practice was discriminatory and
that job announcements must be published in all of the 23
languages of the member states.
"This is a ruling that Italy welcomes with great
satisfaction," Terzi said.
"This is an important decision because it... defends the
principle of non-discrimination in language in the European
Union".
The decision came after Italy appealed a 2010 ruling that
allowed the EU to publish job announcements only in English,
French, and German.
Terzi said it was only right to have job announcements in
as many languages as exist in the EU.
"This judgement is a great recognition of the line that
Italy has always supported," he said.
In the past, Italy has launched a number of campaigns in
defence of the use of the Italian language in European Union
procedures and documents.
Italy and Spain lost a recent battle against a new EU-wide
patent written in French, English, and German.
