EU citizens’ rights group launches CSI Justice campaign
Campaigners are pursuing compensation for EU citizens wrongly found to be unlawfully resident for lack of private health insurance.
The CSI Justice campaign, launched by lobby group the3million, follows the decision of the Court of Justice ruling in the case C‑247/20 VI v Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs, which was reported in March 2022 and which held that EU nationals did not need Comprehensive Sickness Insurance to be legally resident in the UK as students or self-sufficient persons. The Home Office and UK courts had always insisted that they did, despite having the right to use the NHS.
Please see our previous news post on such a court ruling, dated 16 March 2022, on our web-site by the following link.
Consequences of failing the supposed CSI requirement included denial of benefits, inability to qualify for citizenship and permanent residence, and even removal from the UK.
The campaign is “supporting people to pursue justice and explore options to seek restitution”. Its website points out that claims for damages for breach of EU law can still be brought in the UK until 31 December 2022.
