NI Protocol 'breaches Good Friday Agreement'

Message par » mar. mai 18, 2021 4:03 am

Eight prominent unionists involved in negotiating the Good Friday Agreement have called for the Northern Ireland Protocol to be suspended.

A letter has been sent to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, taoiseach (Irish PM) Micheál Martin, US President Joe Biden and European Commission vice president Maros Sefcovic.

Among the signatories are Lord Trimble, Lord Maginnis and Lord Empey.

They say the NI Protocol disrespects the integrity of the UK.

The signatories of the letter said the protocol breaches many of the guarantees that were in Good Friday Agreement and that the mechanism works against the wishes of unionists in Northern Ireland and therefore is unacceptable.

What is the Good Friday Agreement?
Lord Trimble had been positive about Boris Johnson's Brexit deal in the past.

In 2019 he described the prime minister's deal as "fully in accordance with the spirit of the Good Friday Agreement".
The men wrote that they had signed the Good Friday Agreement - the key document that helped bring the Troubles in Northern Ireland to an end - "in the belief that that it guaranteed that our country's constitutional status would not change without the consent of its people exercised in a free vote".

They said it was their belief any "significant decision affecting the lives and livelihoods of all our people would require the consent of both communities here". pgslot
