„Judge Igor Tuleya is accusing the Polish government of, inter alia, breaching his right to private life and his reputation in connection with disciplinary proceedings against him and summoning him as a witness in disciplinary proceedings against other judges.”

„The European Court of Human Rights will consider Judge Igor Tuleya’s application no. 21181/19. This is now the thirteenth application in which the ECtHR will assess whether the changes in the justice system in Poland since 2015 breach the rights of the applicants protected by the European Convention on Human Rights.”

„Tuleya is accusing the Polish government of, inter alia, breaching his right to private life and his reputation in connection with disciplinary proceedings against him and summoning him as a witness in disciplinary proceedings against other judges in 2018 (events after 2018 are not included in the application).”

„The ECtHR noticed the broader context of the disciplinary proceedings against Tuleya and other judges in Poland.”

„In the press release, the Court pointed out that, since the model of disciplinary liability for judges changed in 2018, disciplinary proceedings have been initiated against judges in Poland in connection with their judicial activity and because they have been speaking up in a public debate, especially if the judges criticized the changes in the judiciary. It also noted that a slanderous campaign was being conducted against Judge Tuleya in the media, insulting him and attempting to discredit him and that the judge was receiving hate messages.”
