Tahir v Ministero dell’Interno and another (Case C-469/13) ECLI:EU:C:2014:2094;  [2014] WLR (D)  322

‘Articles 4(1) and 7(1) of Council Directive 2003/109/EC of 25 November 2003 concerning the status of third-country nationals who are long-term residents (OJ 2004 L16, p 44) (as amended) meant that family members of a person who had already acquired long-term resident status could not be exempted from the condition laid down in article 4(1), under which, in order to obtain that status, a third-country national had to have resided legally and continuously in the member state concerned for five years immediately prior to the submission of the relevant application. Article 13 did not allow a member state to issue family members, as defined in article 2(e), with long-term residents’ EU residence permits on terms more favourable than those laid down by the Directive.’
