UK in EU Challenge Launches its Appeal
Vote Leave Broke the Law
Diciembre 18, 2018, Valencia, Spain. Press Dispensary. Following Judge Ouseley’s decision to refuse permission for the case to proceed, the UK in EU Challenge ( http://www.ukineuchallenge.com (http://www.ukineuchallenge.com) ) claimants have today lodged an appeal. The case was heard in the Royal Courts of Justice on Friday 7 December and a decision was deferred until the following week. On Monday 10 December, permission to proceed was denied. The Appellants’ Notice was submitted to the Court of Appeal today by Croft Solicitors.
Sue Wilson, lead claimant and chair of Bremain in Spain, comments: “I have complete confidence in our legal team and the strength of our legal arguments. We will continue to fight our corner until we have exhausted every legal avenue open to us. Vote Leave broke the law – that is beyond dispute.”
Wilson continues: “Whether or not we succeed in our appeal, we will continue to raise the issues of the Leave Campaign’s illegal actions and the resulting effect on the referendum. The tainted referendum result has caused untold damage – we mustn’t allow a repeat performance. Any future referendum must be free from illegal activity.”
The UK in EU Challenge now awaits a decision to its application, and is hopeful of being granted a “rolled-up” hearing.
Wilson concludes: “Throughout this process, we have been made to jump through hoops to bring our case to the attention of the court and public. We’re still here, we’re still fighting, and we’re still confident we can make this count. We have to try, for the sake of British democracy and the rule of law.”
