THIS COULD BE ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT BREXIT LEGAL CHALLENGES TO DATE, NOW IN THE EU COURT IN LUXEMBOURG.
Millions of UK Citizens who have lived abroad for over 15 years were denied a vote on their future in the EU referendum. This is illegal under EU law. Equal treatment among European citizens is a fundamental principle laid down in the European Treaties and the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union.
Voting rights for all UK citizens regardless of time lived abroad were promised by David Cameron in 2015, and again by the May Government in October 2016, with the promise that they would be given prior to the next General Election. These promises remain unfulfilled.
We are ACTION FOR EXPAT VOTES and we supported the first legal challenge in the EU Court in July 2017 on behalf of eleven representative appellants including unstoppable 96 year old WW2 war veteran Harry Shindler.
