14 Aug Croft Solicitors are representing clients in a court challenge against Brexit on the ground of the breaches of electoral law of the campaigns during the 2016 Referendum
Our clients are a group of British citizens who live in other EU countries and are members of the pan-European organisation, “UK in EU Challenge”. The rights of the estimated 1 to 2 million British nationals who live, work or have other interests in other member states are profoundly affected by Brexit.
Recent findings by the Electoral Commission of illegal conduct by the Leave campaigns during the 2016 EU Referendum have called into question whether the Referendum was conducted in accordance with the UK’s constitutional requirements.
Our clients contend the Prime Minister’s decision to trigger Article 50 and start the Brexit process was based on a factual error, namely that the Referendum truly represented the will of the people following a lawful, free and fair vote. They argue that it was not, and the decision to trigger Article 50 to withdraw from the EU was not in accordance with the UK’s constitutional requirements.
UK in EU Challenge is raising fund via their website to meet the legal costs for the case – www.ukineuchallenge.com
