Poland to be Referred to EU's Top Court

Deutsche Welle

The European Commission announced today on 24 September that it is taking Poland to the European Union's highest court over the Polish government's changes to a law on the Supreme Court, which according to the European Commission infringes the independence of the judiciary.

"The European Commission decided to refer Poland to the Court of Justice of the EU due to the violations of the principle of judicial independence created by the new Polish Law on the Supreme Court, and to ask the Court of Justice to order interim measures until it has issued a judgment on the case," the European Commission informed in a statement.

Commission spokeswoman Mina Andreeva told a news briefing that the EU executive had asked to suspend early retirement for the judges of Poland’s Supreme Court as well as the appointment of new judges in their place, Euronews reported.
