Britain can unilaterally stop Brexit process, EU lawyers say
- In an opinion prepared for the European Court of Justice (ECJ) in Strasbourg, the advocate general said the UK could stop the two-year legal countdown invoked under Article 50.
Judges must now decide whether to accept the advocate general's advice, as they do in most cases.If they do, it gives the UK parliament another way in which to force the government's hand.
The British government has the power to unilaterally halt the Brexit process, a top European legal adviser has said, delivering a significant boost to campaigners who want the UK to remain in the EU.
