The bitter move will see the bloc launch three separate lawsuits against Britain for attempting to unilaterally untether from the Northern Ireland Protocol. The Government said it was forced to act after re-negotiations to solve problems with the original deal stalled and the bloc introduced 4,000 new laws that could impact the Protocol since its introduction in January 2021.
