„A new disciplinary body on Poland’s Supreme Court doesn’t guarantee judicial independence, the advocate general of the Court of Justice of the European Union said in an opinion issued Thursday.”

„The disciplinary chamber of the Polish Supreme Court is part of deep reforms to the Polish judicial system carried out by the ruling Law and Justice party.  The chamber was meant to examine the cases of judges forced to retire early under a new law.”

„In Thursday’s opinion, Advocate General Evgeni Tanchev said that the chamber “does not satisfy the requirements of judicial independence under EU law,” as the body that chooses its members, the National Council of the Judiciary (NCJ), is dependent on the executive and legislative branches.”
