AG: Intra-EU ISDS arbitration is compatible with EU law

According to Advocate General Wathelet, the arbitration clause in the investment protection agreement concluded between the Netherlands and Slovakia is compatible with EU law!

That clause does not constitute discrimination on grounds of nationality, is compatible with the preliminary ruling mechanism and does not undermine either the allocation of powers fixed by the Treaties or the autonomy of the EU legal system!
