The French barrister whose Schindler court case was dismissed by the EU’s general court has now filed an appeal.

Fouchet’s argument that disenfranchised British expats unable to vote in the Brexit referendum are already being strongly affected by Brexit was rejected by the EU court, which took the position that, as Brexit hasn’t yet happened, it isn’t possible for Brit expats subject to the 15-year rule to feel any negative effects as their rights are still being conferred. Fouchet told local English language media he’s appealing to the European Court of Justice and is asking for disenfranchised expats who feel their lives have been affected by the Brexit negotiations to come forward and add their experiences to the appeal.

He’s asking British expats across Europe to let him know if they’ve been refused or lost a job, were unable to rent a home, had a loan denied or were disallowed from registering to vote due to their British nationality to put the experience in writing and send it to him. Ideally, the email report should include written proof that decisions were, in fact, based on Brexit. All communications will be in confidence, and should be sent to [email protected] It’s crucial that negative experiences based on the effects of Brexit to date should be put before the EU’s appeal court, as it’s obvious it’s not just the already-damaged lives of disenfranchised British expats caught in the chaotic Brexit negotiations, but also the preferred lifestyles all Britons in Europe which are now at risk from whichever form of Brexit makes it through the next three months. The vast majority of British expats living, working and retiring in the EU are now affected in one way or another.
