Scotland civil court rules “unlawful” to suspension of UK parliament

LONDON, Scotland’s highest civil court has ruled on Wednesday that Boris Johnson’s suspension of the UK Parliament is unlawful.

A panel of three judges at the Court of Session found in favor of a cross-party group of politicians who were challenging the prime minister’s move.

The judges said Johnson was attempting to prevent Parliament holding the government to account ahead of Brexit.

A UK government appeal against the ruling will be head by the Supreme Court in London next Tuesday.

Opposition parties have called for Parliament to be immediately recalled, but government sources have told the BBC that the demands would be rejected.
