What would happen if any country which is an EU member wanted to sign Article 50 so that they could leave the EU but they had outstanding fines that needed paying for breaching EU laws?
Would they somehow be prevented from leaving despite the article being signed or would something else happen? If so, what?

I can imagine they would be held for ransom.
In a fair world, they would be asked to pay the money back over a period of time, but EU isn't nice enough to do that to a country who wants their sovereignty back.
