A complaint from Poland has been brought before The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) against the European Commission's decision to cut Poland's EU funding in order to recover money Warsaw had refused to pay after CJEU ruling on Turow coal mine, the CJEU press officer has said.
The Czech Republic has withdrawn from "European institutions" a complaint against Poland over the environmental impact of a Polish lignite mine, Mateusz Morawiecki, the Polish prime minister, has said.
Having prolonged the disputed Turow mine extraction licence for another six years without an environment impact analysis, Poland has violated EU laws, according to an Advocate General of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU).
Anna Moskwa, the Polish climate minister, has said that the Tuesday talks between her and her Czech counterpart may soon result in an agreement that will end the dispute over a Polish lignite mine.
The European Commission (EC) has confirmed it has received a letter from the Polish government on the Disciplinary Chamber of the Supreme Court and will react "swiftly" to it, a spokesperson said on Tuesday.
Poland is prepared to present a plan to liquidate the Disciplinary Chamber of the Supreme Court, but only once an agreement has been reached with the European Commission over its post-pandemic National Recovery Plan, the government spokesman has said.
The Polish climate and environment minister has said that the Czech Republic's obligation to withdraw a dispute regarding the Turow lignite mine from the EU's court within three days should be a key element of any deal.
Poland’s deputy justice minister has described an opinion issued by the advocate general of the EU’s highest court calling on the court to dismiss a Polish and Hungarian challenge to a conditionality mechanism as "an assault on the rule of law."
EU Commissioner for Justice Didier Reynders said on Thursday that Poland complying with rulings of the European Court of Justice (CJEU) is the only way out of conflict between Warsaw and Brussels.
The European Court of Justice (CJEU) on Tuesday ruled that Poland's system of seconding judges to higher criminal courts was incompatible with EU law.
