EU executive and Socialist Frans Timmermans (and his little sidekick, Vera Jourova, from Czechia), opens a new case against Poland over judges.
The Polish government has two months to reply, the European Commission said. How convenient for Frans to bring this up before the EU elections.
The EU Commission is “bottom-shelf” and full of political opportunists and charlatans looking to feed off the system.
However, the Polish justice minister defended the new rules to discipline judges. After all, Poland will decide what is best for Poland, not some unelected Dutch Eurocrat.
This battle comes down to one issue: the power of Brussels vs. the sovereignty and integrity of the European nation state.
Poland must stand strong and others in Central Europe must stand by Poland. If not, they will be the Commission’s next target
– New Polish measures to discipline judges are designed to fight “pathological” bevahiour and are less political than those in neighbouring Germany, the country’s justice minister said on Wednesday.
Zbigniew Ziobro told reporters that, contrary to what the EU’s executive argued, the new Disciplinary Chamber in Poland’s Supreme Court had been established to deal with lapses among judges, including cases of theft.
He added that previous procedures were inadequate to discipline such judges.
Asked by journalists about the European Commission’s decision, Ziobro said that Poland’s National Council of the Judiciary (KRS), a powerful body that is tasked with selecting judges for the Disciplinary Chamber, “is much less dependent on political factors than is the case in Germany.”
