Advise Mary and Marco on to the application of EU law on the free movement of natural and legal persons to each aspect of this situation

Mary, a British national, is 33 years old and wishes to settle permanently in Italy. She
has been living in Rome for the past seven months.
Shortly after her arrival in Rome, Mary struggled in finding a job and after 2 months,
she started to work from her home as a hairdresser while looking for a more stable
job. Eventually Mary secured a permanent employment as a kitchen assistant in a
restaurant. She worked there for 25 hours a week but she quickly began to feel very
despondent as her income was below the minimum wage. Soon after, Mary became
involved in criminal activities. She has just been convicted of robbery with violence
and the Italian court is considering ordering her expulsion from Italy on public policy
grounds.
Marco is an Italian national who founded and manages a limited company that for a
fee helps EU nationals to find a job in Rome. Marco put Mary in contact with the
restaurant where she worked as kitchen assistant. Following her criminal conviction,
Marco is worried of the possible negative consequences for his business. He has,
therefore, decided to move to the UK and to relocate his business there for a while.
He is planning to rent an office in Cambridge.
The UK’s decision to exit the EU has created great uncertainty for many people
across the UK and Europe, including for Mary and Marco.
