We obtained Igor Tuleya’s last decision to refer four questions to the Court of Justice in connection with his alleged suspension by the ‘Disciplinary Chamber’.

„Moments before court administration denied judge Igor Tuleya access to courtroom and case files, he managed to request the Court of Justice under the preliminary ruling procedure. In essence, Tuleya asks whether, despite his suspension by the compromised ‘Disciplinary Chamber’, he can still rule a case as a ‘court’ within the meaning of EU law. His referral has been received by Luxembourg court, sources say.”

„It is his second request to the Court of Justice since ruling Law and Justice party started to curb judicial independence, among other things, by introducing political measures to discipline judges. In March, the ECJ found them inadmissible but stressed that national judges cannot be threatened with disciplinary sanctions for launching the preliminary reference procedure. Now, since the ‘Disciplinary Chamber’s’ suspension concerns him directly, Tuleya requests if he still can form judicial bench and rule on the case.”
