The Court of Justice of the European Union has assigned EU Britizen’s case to the Court’s Grand Chamber

After studying the questions raised by French judges in the case put forward by Maitre Julien Fouchet and colleagues, the Court of Justice of the European Union, has assigned the case to the Court’s Grand Chamber of fifteen judges. After Mrs. Bouilliez was refused the right to vote in the 2020 French municipal elections, together with other concerned UK British passport holders, who are resident in the 27 remaining countries of the European Union, they created EU Britizens, an Association 1901 registered under French law, in support of Maitre Julien Fouchet and Maitre Jean-Noël Caubet-Hilloutou, seeking to regain the right to vote in local and European elections, for ALL British EU residents.

Alice Bouilliez, President of EU Britizens, said:
“This is excellent news for the case and for the cause that EU Britizens is fighting for. This is the first step towards addressing the injustice that has been incurred by ALL of us, that infringes our Human Rights and offends the EU concept of Citizenship.”

Terry Knott, Secretary of EU Britizens, said:
“That the case has been assigned to the Court’s Grand Chamber of fifteen judges confirms the importance of the question that EU Britizens has raised.”
