Is breaking the law right on Brexit? UK says the law must be obeyed on COVID

Wed, 9th Sep 2020 07:07

LONDON, Sept 9 (Reuters) - Britain's health minister said on
Wednesday that people should obey the law over coronavirus after
he was asked if it was right to break international law in a
limited and specific way over Brexit.

"Of course, abiding by these rules is absolutely vital to
protect life," Health Secretary Matt Hancock said when asked why
people should obey the law following remarks from a minister on
Tuesday that proposed legislation would break international law
in a "limited way".

On Brexit and the Northern Ireland protocol, Hancock said:
"The government has a number of international obligations and
the primary among those in this context is protecting the peace
process - that's about people's safety and security too."
