Poland's Supreme Court deferred making a ruling on the case of loans denominated in foreign currencies on Thursday, instead asking the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) to help it resolve a procedural issue on the appointment of judges.
A group of 92 active and retired Polish Supreme Court judges appealed on Wednesday for the immediate execution of two Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) rulings on the Supreme Court's disciplinary chamber.
The government will make changes to a disciplinary body attached to Poland’s Supreme Court that is at the centre of a legal dispute with the EU, a leading Polish official has said.
Zbigniew Ziobro, Poland’s justice minister, has said a European court's ruling on Poland's new disciplinary panel for judges is "unlawful" and against the Polish constitution.
Poland's newly appointed ombudsman has said that the contested disciplinary body of the country's Supreme Court should be suspended until a European Court's ruling is implemented.
The Polish government will analyse a European Commission (EC) request to present information on how Poland is implementing an EU top court ruling suspending the operation of the country's disciplinary regime for judges, the government spokesman has said.
The European Commission has given Poland until August 16 to adhere to an EU court ruling on the Disciplinary Chamber of the country’s Supreme Court, or face a financial penalty.
Mateusz Morawiecki, the Polish prime minister, has said fears that Poland may leave the European Union due to the growing conflict over the country's judiciary reforms are "political fantasy."
The Polish justice minister has expressed his satisfaction with Poland’s top court Wednesday ruling that the interim measures imposed on the Polish judicial system by the top European court are against the Polish constitution.
Poland's Constitutional Tribunal has ruled as unconstitutional the EU Treaty provisions on which the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) based interim measures that Poland must suspend the functioning of the Supreme Court's Disciplinary Chamber.
