EU Will Drag UK To Court!

 The European Union (EU) will take legal action against the UK today, over its move to change the terms of the Northern Ireland Protocol.

The European Commission will issue legal proceedings through two letters to the British government, following its decision on March 3 to extend the unilateral deferral period for post-Brexit checks on goods entering Northern Ireland from the UK.

This resulted in it violating the terms of the Northern Ireland Protocol which has been in force since 1 January 2021.

Brexit EU chief Maros Sefcovic will reportedly send two letters to Downing Street one of which is said to serve as a formal notification that will prompt breach proceedings for alleged breaches of EU law.

The latter, meanwhile, was described by Brussels as a ‘political’ letter, claiming the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement had been violated.

The letter would drag the British government to the European Court of Justice, while a political warning that could trigger an arbitration process under the dispute resolution mechanism in the Withdrawal Agreement.

Britain, however, denies its actions violate and violate EU law.
