Thursday The Constitutional Tribunal ruled that some of the EU regulations asked by the head of government were inconsistent with the constitution.
Protests in front of the Constitutional Tribunal
In connection with this ruling, a group of demonstrators gathered in front of the building of the Constitutional Tribunal in Warsaw. When Deputy Foreign Minister Paweł Jabłoński left the building, protesters chanted accusations of treason in his direction.
– The constitution won, a very important sentence – said Paweł Jabłoński. – I would be very grateful if we could calm down and give the opportunity to speak. If you are not able to calm down, we will not be able to talk – he addressed the people gathered in front of the Constitutional Tribunal.
– We can talk in different conditions because, as you can see, there is no discussion here. There are nerves, there are emotions, and I would be very happy to say something about the constitution, but in these conditions it is impossible – added Paweł Jabłoński.
