EU to imminently launch legal action against UK over Brexit bill - RTE

LONDON (Reuters) - The European Union will imminently launch legal action against the United Kingdom for a breach of the good faith articles in the Withdrawal Agreement, Irish broadcaster RTE said on Thursday.

“RTE understands that legal action against the United Kingdom is imminent and that a draft ‘letter of formal notice’ has been finalised, triggering legal action,” RTE Europe Editor Tony Connelly said on Twitter.

“The letter of formal notice focuses on a breach of the “good faith” articles (4 & 5) of the Withdrawal Agreement, and it will also state that if the Internal Market Bill becomes law it would be further breach of EU + international law.”
