The British Supreme Court will only issue an opinion on the suspension of the British parliament early next week. Previously it seemed that a judgment would be published Thursday evening or Friday.
That is what the Supreme Court president, Lady Hale, says on Thursday at the end of the last session. She emphasizes that this is "not a simple matter" and that it also says nothing about the way the British leave the European Union.
The British House of Commons has been officially suspended since last Tuesday until mid-October. According to Prime Minister Johnson this is necessary to set up a good plan for domestic politics, according to critics it is an attempt by Johnson to silence the parliament.
An English court previously ruled that the suspension is a political matter, not a legal one. However, a Scottish court ruled that the suspension for weeks is unlawful. The overarching British Supreme Court therefore considered the case from Tuesday to Thursday this week.
