Nine EU governments at the UN yesterday called on Poland to restore its formerly independent and effective Constitutional Tribunal and protect the rule of law. But will EU ministers speak up again at next week’s General Affairs Council?
In December, the Parliament announced restrictive limitations on the work of parliamentary correspondents. By mid-January, the limitations expanded to include media coverage of Constitutional Tribunal hearings.
Civil society organizations from all over the world signed the letter to the Polish president and prime minister calling on them to implement the recommendations set by the European Commission early in July this year.
