European Union Launches Legal Action Over UK Brexit Bill

London: The European Union took legal action against Britain on Thursday and will send a “letter of formal notice” for breaching the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement, as reported by Hindustan Times.

The formal letter is the first step in a legal process that could end up into a lawsuit at the European Court of Justice. European Commission president Ursula von der Layen will announce the plan at 11 am in Brussels.

Leyen said that the British plan “by its very nature is a breach of the obligation of good faith laid down in the Withdrawal Agreement.”

“If adopted as is, it will be in full contradiction to the protocol of Ireland-Northern Ireland” in the withdrawal agreement.

The former German defence minister said that the UK had a month to respond to the commission’s letter of notice, which marks the beginning of a formal infringement process.

The United Kingdom was a member of the bloc until January 31. Both the sides are now trying to forge a rudimentary free trade agreement before a Brexit transition period expires at the end of 2020, yet the fight over the controversial Internal Market bill has soured relations.
