Britian could still change mind about Brexit: EU court adviser

04 Décembre, 2018, 13:53 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

While the Advocate General's opinions are not binding, the court tends to follow them in its final rulings.

Britain can unilaterally cancel Brexit, without getting the EU's permission, a senior legal advisor has told the European Court of Justice (ECJ), if the Article 50 process is revoked before the 29 March 2019 deadline for leaving the bloc.

Campos Sanchez-Bordona, the European Court of Justice's advocate general, told the EU's top court it should allow the United Kingdom to withdraw its notice of intent to leave the bloc.

Since Article 50 is scant on details - largely because the idea of any country leaving the bloc was considered unlikely - a group of Scottish legislators wants to know whether the United Kingdom can pull out of the withdrawal procedure on its own. An expedited ECJ decision on the case is expected before the end of the year.

The non-binding advice comes as the British parliament begins five days of debates on Prime Minister Theresa May's proposed Brexit deal with the European Union before voting on it next Tuesday.

Meanwhile, British MPs will vote today on whether the government broke parliamentary rules by not publishing the full legal advice it received on its Brexit plan.

Defeat would leave the United Kingdom facing a chaotic "no-deal" Brexit and could topple the prime minister, her government, or both.

Lawmakers are voting on a motion that could find the government in contempt of Parliament for refusing to publish the full guidance from Attorney General Geoffrey Cox.
