Regina v Secretary of State for the Home Department, Ex Parte Savas: ECJ 23 May 2000

The article required Turkish nationals not to be treated worse than EU nationals, but did not itself confer a right of residence.
Europa EEC-Turkey Association – Restrictions on freedom of establishment and right of residence – Article 13 of the Association Agreement and Article 41 of the Additional Protocol – Direct effect – Scope – Turkish national unlawfully present in the host Member State.
