UK: London court rules Johnson's prorogation legal but allows appeal

Reino Unido, London
06 septiembre 2019 a las 13:33 GMT +00:00 · Publicado

London's High Court ruled on Friday that UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson's move to prorogue parliament for five weeks was legal, but granted the plaintiff, pro-Remain lawyer Gina Miller, leave to appeal to the Supreme Court.

"We are very disappointed with the judgement today. We feel strongly that parliamentary sovereignty is fundamental to the stability and future of our country and therefore worth fighting to defend. As our politics becomes ever more chaotic, we feel it is absolutely vital that parliament should be sitting," said Miller outside court.

According to Miller, who's case was supported by former Prime Minister John Major, the Supreme Court will hear their appeal on September 17.

Millar has long been an activist for remaining in the European Union. In 2016, she famously challenged the legal authority of the government to revoke article 50 without seeking approval from parliament.

This case, and ruling, followed similar court proceedings in Edingburg last week, where the court also ruled in favour of the government while granting leave to appeal. Another is case challenging prorogaton is set to be heard in Northern Ireland on Friday.
