Sent an email to EU

Sent an email to EU

 Hirst v UK (No2) established the human right to vote. Greens and MT v UK extended this to include the European elections. The UK has ignored the ECtHR decisions. The Council of Europe has no enforcement powers. Is it possible to challenge the UK's failure to act in the CJEU?

The UK has a policy which means that released life sentence prisoners are not permitted to travel abroad without the permission of the MoJ. No other EU country has this policy. It means that those in the UK cannot get jobs in other EU countries whereas other EU ex-prisoners can get jobs in the UK. Can this policy be challenged in the CJEU?
