Poland: “Reform” of the judiciary in Poland poses risk to the right to fair trial: Briefing by Amnesty International ahead of the General Affairs Council meeting, March
This briefing provides specific examples that illustrate the negative impact on the rule of law and human rights in Poland as a result of the government’s “reform” of the judiciary adopted in the period between July and December 2017. Amnesty International concludes that there is a “clear risk of a serious breach” by the Polish government of the values protected by Article 2 TEU, and that Poland is already in breach of its international obligations to uphold the rule of law and protect human rights.
