(ANSA) – WARSAW, 14 JUL – The European Court of Justice has upheld the European Commission’s reasons for seeking a moratorium on the competence of the Supreme Court’s disciplinary division (a firm ruling is pending).
Brussels turned to the European Court of Justice in March because the disciplinary body, implicitly appointed by the Warsaw parliament, considered arbitrary disciplinary action against Polish judges by the majority of the government.
According to the European Court of Justice, the arguments put forward by the European Commission justify the granting of provisional measures. The Polish Constitutional Court responded by rejecting EU regulation allowing the European Court of Justice to rule on the “systems, policies and practices” of the Polish courts, saying it was “not in accordance with the Polish Constitution”.
In its appeal to the European Court of Justice, the EU Commission identified the violation of EU law as “the disciplinary division of the Supreme Court – its independence is not guaranteed – is allowed to make decisions with a direct impact on the judges and their mechanism. The implementation of their functions, seriously undermining the independence of the judiciary”. The result is the overall legal order of the EU. (On the handle).
