‚The Minister of Justice suspended Judge Adam Synakiewicz from Częstochowa for a month for challenging the status of neo-judges and implementing the judgments of the CJEU and ECtHR. Zbigniew Ziobro breached the CJEU judgment in this way, for which he may be criminally liable in the future.’

‚Minister Zbigniew Ziobro suspended Judge Adam Synakiewicz from the Częstochowa Regional Court on Wednesday 8 September 2021. This is formally a decision to remove him from adjudicating for a month. The minister did this after a letter was sent to the ministry by Deputy Disciplinary Commissioner Przemyslaw Radzik, a Ziobro nominee known for prosecuting independent judges, who had initiated an investigation against the judge.’

‚The judge is being prosecuted because he implemented the judgments of the Court of Justice of the EU and the European Court of Human Rights from July 2021 regarding the status of the illegal Disciplinary Chamber and the new, political NCJ, which promotes judges. This was the basis on which Synakiewicz challenged the judgments issued by the neo-judges nominated by the new NCJ.’

‚This did not please Minister Ziobro, who spoke on a Catholic radio, stating that disciplinary proceedings should be applied to such judges, who should be removed from the profession. The minister’s words were quickly implemented by his disciplinary commissioner, Przemyslaw Radzik, who initiated proceedings against the judge. He accused Synakiewicz of overstepping his powers (under Article 231 of the Penal Code) and of breaching the unconstitutional Muzzle Act, which prohibits judges from examining the status of neo-judges.’

‚However, Radzik himself is exposing himself to criminal liability, because, by initiating the case against the judge, he breached the CJEU judgment which suspended these provisions of the Muzzle Act. And now Minister Ziobro has breached them.’
