Pol­ish judges slam gov­ern­ment

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Around 1000 Pol­ish judges ac­cused their EU coun­try’s right-wing gov­ern­ment of politi­cis­ing the ju­di­cial sys­tem amid a high-pitched con­sti­tu­tional cri­sis trig­gered by re­forms to the top court. “The ex­ec­u­tive and leg­isla­tive branches of gov­ern­ment are at­tempt­ing to take con­trol of the ju­di­ciary. This process is in­ten­si­fy­ing,” the judges said in a state­ment is­sued at an ex­tra­or­di­nary congress in Warsaw. The Euro­pean Com­mis­sion has given Warsaw un­til the end of Oc­to­ber to re­verse them or face sanc­tions.
