Thousands of Polish lawyers signed the appeal to the Polish authorities to implement the judgments of the Court of Justice of the European Union. Katarzyna Szeska, prosecutor from the Lex Super Omnia association, talked about it in “One for One” on TVN24. As she pointed out, this is a sign that something “broke” also in the prosecutors signing the appeal.
Court of Justice of the European Union ruled on 15 July that the system of disciplinary liability of judges in Poland is inconsistent with European Union law. On July 14, the vice-president of the CJEU, Rosario Silva de Lapuerta, decided to apply interim measures to Poland in another case in the form of “immediate suspension” of the application of national provisions relating to the powers of the Disciplinary Chamber not recognized by the Supreme Court.
Thousands of Polish lawyers signed an appeal in which they called on “all obligated authorities” to “fully comply with the decision of the Court of Justice of the European Union of July 14, 2021 and the judgment of the Court of July 15, 2021, including the immediate cessation of the Disciplinary Chamber’s activities. SN “. The signatories of the letter are also judges of the Supreme Court and 376 prosecutors.
Szeska: prosecutors came out of this indifference in which they had been stuck for six years
Prosecutor Katarzyna Szeska from the Lex Super Omnia association spoke about this issue in the Monday edition of the interview “One for One”. – I must say that I am happy with each of these 376 prosecutor’s signatures, and I know that there are more of them, because they keep coming in – she said. In her opinion, “this proves that something has broken open in the prosecutors, prosecutors have come out of the indifference in which they have been stuck for six years”.
Szeska pointed out that “on the list of signatories to the appeal there are people who are not members of Lex Super Omnia”. “This is proof that prosecutors are thinking lawyers,” she commented.
Szeska: the prosecutor’s office died in silence in 2016
– But there is one thing to remember. Prosecutors, as a professional group, were probably the most battered by the so-called reform of Zbigniew Ziobro. It was the prosecutor’s office that died in silence in 2016 – said the prosecutor. – None of the politicians, none of the decision-makers spoke a word when the pseudo-reform of the prosecutor’s office was carried out and, under the guise of changing the plates on the buildings, people were getting rid of, depriving them of all their professional achievements – she added.
According to Szeska, “the proposed, announced reform of the judiciary, its second stage, is reminiscent of boringly what was done to the prosecutor’s office in 2016”.
