#DeniedMyVote - European Citizens in the UK move ahead with legal challenge for systematic violations of democratic rights at the European Elections

01/08/2019

EU citizens' rights group the3million have instructed Bindmans to press ahead with a legal challenge to hold the UK government to account for denying EU citizens across the country their vote in the European Elections in May 2019.

Their decision was driven by the government's refusal to hold a public inquiry despite several successful petitions that between them gathered over 150,000 signatures. the3million researched and analysed well over 900 individual cases of citizens who were denied their vote and concluded that there was clear responsibility on the side of the government.

The grassroots organisation used their findings to get advice from barristers Dinah Rose QC, Anneli Howard and Gayatri Sarathy along with Bindmans' John Halford. It now needs to raise at least £65,000 in order to issue the claim later this month.
