Legal company Mishcon de Reya in London, the representative of certain groups of businessmen and scientists, notified the British Parliament about beginning of the legal procedure. The BBC reports that company intends to challenge the UK exit from the EU.
Clients of this company are confident that under the British constitution there is only one resolution of the Parliament which can legitimately run the country's exit from the EU process. This is stated in the 50th article of the Lisbon Treaty. If the Prime Minister accepts this decision on his own, so he becomes a violator of the European Communities Act since 1972. This Act prescribes the UK entrance into the EU, as well as the EU agreement on national law. "Therefore, to cancel one legislative act we need another legislative act", - underline in Mishcon de Reya.
"We do not doubt the results of the referendum. However, in order to implement it we need to start the process, which is consistent with the law of the United Kingdom. Now the result of the referendum is practically illegal. Therefore, the present or the future Prime Minister has no right to use the 50-th article without the approval of the Parliament ", - considers K. Norouzi, the company's partner.
