Reports and information relating to the infringement procedure launched by the European Commission against Poland over a series of amendments to legislative acts on the judiciary.
The law amending the acts governing the functioning of the justice system in Poland was adopted in December 2019 and entered into force in February 2020. The European Commission took the view that this law undermines the independence of Polish judges and is also incompatible with the primacy of EU law.
A Letter of Formal Notice was therefore issued against Poland regarding the law on the judiciary on 29 April 2020. The national authorities were given two months to respond to the Letter.
