Poland: EU asks European Court for financial penalties

On independence of Polish judges

07 September, 12:07
(ANSA) - BELGRADE, SEP 7 - The European Commission decided to request the Court of Justice to impose financial penalties on Poland today. The decision, the Commission said, " related to the functioning of the Disciplinary Chamber of the Polish Supreme Court and the suspension of further provisions of Polish law affecting judicial independence." Furthermore, the Commission decided to send a letter of formal notice to Poland for not taking the necessary measures to comply with a judgment of the Court. The judgement found that "Polish law on the disciplinary regime against judges is not compatible with EU law," the Commission recalled. (ANSA).
