„The chief disciplinary commissioner, Piotr Schab, has been nominated to the office of president of the Regional Court in Warsaw. Schab is known for prosecuting independent judges. If this information is officially confirmed, it will mean a stricter course for Poland’s largest court.”

„Piotr Schab was nominated by the ministry of justice to the office of president of the Regional Court on Monday on 16 November in the afternoon. The nomination comes as a surprise as, until now, Schab, as the main disciplinary commissioner, was mainly interested in handling disciplinary action against defiant judges. He was doing this with two deputies, Przemysław Radzik and Michał Lasota. And since they prosecute judges for anything at all, they have become symbols of the ‘good change’ in the courts.”

„According to our information, Schab had apparently specified financial conditions in exchange for his consent to take up this position. We wanted to ask Schab about the nomination, but his mobile phone had been switched off. We also failed to establish whether he would combine the function of president of Poland’s largest and most important court with the function of the chief disciplinary commissioner for judges. We wanted to ask the ministry of justice press officer, Agnieszka Borowska, about this, but she did not answer her phone.”
