Václav Žalud

I would be very interested in getting to know whether the referring court eventually justifies the restriction in the light of the objective of protection of public health. For me it seems that Belgian arguments are a little bit exaggerated. I would really like to see, how many French students who studied in Belgium actually go back to France to work and further how much this amount actually impairs the Belgium national healthcare system.

The judgment is interesting, because it is one of the few cases where the restriction on free movement of EU citizens could be justified. But since the Belgian rule seems to be prima facie indirect discrimination, the proportionality test should be, in my opinion, relatively strict.
