EU threat­ens Poland curbs

The Myanmar Times - Weekend - - World -

THE EU warned Poland’s right-wing gov­ern­ment Wed­nes­day to sus­pend con­tro­ver­sial court re­forms or risk un­prece­dented sanc­tions.

Sharply es­ca­lat­ing a stand­off with War­saw, Euro­pean Com­mis­sion vice pres­i­dent Frans Tim­mer­mans said Brus­sels could launch dis­ci­plinary ac­tion next week. He also threat­ened to move to­wards halt­ing Poland’s vot­ing rights in the 28-na­tion bloc fur­ther down the line – a so-called “nu­clear op­tion” that the EU has never in­voked.
