We are asking the Polish government to implement the latest decision of the Court of Justice of the European Union on the end of disciplinary procedures against judges in Poland, said European Union Justice Commissioner Didier Reynders in “Fakty po Faktach”. – If you want to apply the same EU law in all Member States, you have to implement and apply the decisions of the CJEU – he emphasized.
EU Justice Commissioner Didier Reynders is on a two-day visit to Warsaw. He met, among others, with the head of the Supreme Audit Office, Marian Banas, the Minister of Justice Zbigniew Ziobra, and the Marshal of the Senate, Tomasz Grodzki.
On Thursday evening, Reynders was a guest of “Fakty po Faktach” on TVN24. He referred to the activity of the unrecognized Disciplinary Chamber of the Supreme Court and the ruling of the Court of Justice of the European Union. The CJEU ordered Poland to pay to the European Commission one million euros a day for failing to implement interim measures suspending the Disciplinary Chamber of the Supreme Court.
– If you want to apply the same EU law in all Member States, then you have to implement and apply the decisions of the Court of Justice (European Union -red) – emphasized the EU commissioner.
He added that all Member States, not the Commission, “decided that it would be the task of the CJEU to interpret EU law correctly.” – And this is only what the Polish government is asking for – to implement the recent decision of the European Court of Justice on the end of disciplinary procedures against judges in Poland – said Reynders.
He added that the European Commission also wants the Polish government to “consider a reform that will allow the creation of a truly independent body without such a disciplinary regime.”
