The Court of Justice of the European Union will examine on the 6Th of September a case regarding the agricultural products originating from Western Sahara. A pro-Polisario organization called the Western Sahara Campaign, had sued the British government for exporting «illegally» tons of tomatoes from the province.

A case dating back to March 2015 when a well-known law firm, Leigh Day & Co, was mandated by the NGO to lodge a complaint with the Supreme Court of London against the Ministry of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and the Royal Department of Tax Revenues.

In October 2015, the UK's highest court ruled that the case should be referred to the CJEU.
