Europe's top court rejects sanctions against Saudi businessman

Yassin Kadi was on EU blacklist

Europe's highest court ruled that European Union sanctions on Saudi businessman Yassin Kadi were unjustified on Thursday, saying EU governments had failed to provide sufficient evidence that he was involved in terrorist activities.

Kadi was put on an EU blacklist after being included on a United Nations list of people suspected of supporting Osama bin Laden directly after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States.

"The European Union may not impose restrictive measures on Mr Kadi," the EU Court of Justice in Luxembourgsaid in a statement.
