Brussels seeks to tie UK to European human rights court after Brexit

Brussels is seeking to bind the UK to the European court of human rights – which is entirely separate to the EU’s institutions – after Brexit in a move likely to infuriate those in the Conservative party championing a break with the Strasbourg court, which they say restricts parliamentary sovereignty.

A document outlining the European commission’s position on future judicial and police cooperation stipulates there will be a “guillotine clause” on any security deal should the UK leave the remit of the court.
