E.U. files com­plaint against Poland:

The Washington Post Sunday - - THE WORLD -

The Euro­pean Union’s ex­ec­u­tive branch launched a com­plaint al­leg­ing Poland has cur­tailed ju­di­cial in­de­pen­dence in vi­o­la­tion of E.U. laws. The Euro­pean Com­mis­sion said it sent a “let­ter of for­mal no­tice” that the in­de­pen­dence of Pol­ish courts will be un­der­mined by new “dis­cre­tionary” pow­ers given to the coun­try’s jus­tice min­is­ter. The Euroskep­tic Pol­ish govern­ment has a month to re­ply.
