Malta’s nominee for judge at the EU general court, Ramona Frendo, had been accepted and the lawyer will now serve until the end of August.

Frendo was nominated by the government to replace Peter Xuereb, who took up duties at the Court of Justice last October.

She will serve on the general court at the European Court of Justice for the rest of the term until August.

The appointment was announced today by the European Council. She takes up her post in the general court along with Tuula Pynnä from Finland, whose appointment was also approved today.

During the same council meeting, Andreas Kumin from Austria was appointed judge to the Court of Justice.

Frendo, who has been a lawyer for 22 years, had served as a member of the Justice Reform Commission in 2013 and served as chair of the Visa Working Party during the Maltese Presidency of the European Council in 2017.
