„Polish authorities must “immediately stop” cracking down on judges and prosecutors and reinstate judicial independence, Amnesty International said in a report released Thursday.”

„The report, titled „Poland: Free Courts, Free People,” documents the impact of reforms implemented by the ruling Law and Justice party (PiS) in 2015, which the human rights watchdog describes as „a near wholesale take-over of the judiciary at various levels.”

„Poland is embroiled in a battle with Brussels over its judicial reforms. In June, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) ruled the government’s move to lower the retirement age of Supreme Court judges illegal. The reform would have seen about 40 percent of sitting Supreme Court judges pushed out, including the president.”
