Brussels to sue UK over tax breaks for commodities traders - FT

The Financial Times (FT) quoted the European Union (EU) diplomats, as saying that “the European Commission is bringing the case in the European Court of Justice just over two months before Britain is due to leave the EU, potentially without agreeing to an exit deal.”

“However, the withdrawal treaty that Theresa May has brokered with Brussels means the UK would have to abide by ECJ rulings in cases launched while it was a member or during a 21-month transition period,” the diplomats added.
