The European Commission has filed a lawsuit against Poland in the European Supreme Court, demanding that it violate the independence of judges. Warsaw said the move was unfounded.
The European Community once again contacted the European Court of Justice on the issue of judicial reform in Poland. Currently, the law has come into effect in February 2020, and the law is deemed to violate the independence of judges.
European Justice Commissioner Didier Reindes told reporters: “The committee believes that the disputed law undermines the independence of the Polish judiciary and is inconsistent with the Union’s rule of law.”
The EU executive also asked the court to take “interim measures” to suspend the ruling of the Disciplinary Committee of the Supreme Court of Poland in order to lift the judge’s immunity.
The Polish Minister of Justice, Piotr Mueller, wrote on Twitter: “The European Commission’s request to the court has no legal basis, and the judicial management regulations are entirely within the scope of the country.
The day before yesterday, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki asked the Constitutional Court to rule that the Polish Constitution has the supremacy of EU law.
