Jean-Claude Juncker, the President of the European Commission, may be hauled before the courts for issuing a “Presidential Order” banning Commissioners from holding Brexit talks with British representatives – after it emerged that no such powers exist.
In the days following Britain’s historic referendum vote to leave the EU, Juncker used a televised speech to prevent his officials from opening exit negotiations with Britain until Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty had been invoked.
Juncker claimed during the speech that the decree was a “Presidential Order”.
But the Commission has since admitted that there is no such thing as a Presidential Order, and that Juncker had no right to prevent negotiations from going ahead. Consequently, he may now face legal action for ordering the bogus ban, to the possible detriment of the British people.
The challenge is being brought by Fair Deal for Expats, a non-profit organisation representing British ex-patriots living and working in European Union (EU) countries, which is having to crowd-fund the thousands of pounds required to take the matter to court.
Last night the group’s legal team told The Sun that Juncker’s so-called order “breaches the duty of ‘sincere cooperation’ that the Commission is required to abide by” as it “discriminates against the UK and its people”.
