Poland ordered to pay EU 1 million a day

The standoff between Warsaw and Brussels is becoming increasingly fierce. The Court of Justice of the European Union, which has been calling for the closure of the disciplinary chamber in Poland since this summer, ordered the Eastern State to pay a fine of one million euros per day. This financial sanction was requested on September 7 by the European Commission, to which this sum must be paid.

“Compliance with the provisional measures ordered on July 14 is necessary in order to avoid serious and irreparable damage to the legal order of the European Union as well as to the values ​​on which this Union is founded, in particular that of the State of right, ”said the CJEU, based in Luxembourg, on Wednesday. This lack of independence of the Polish judiciary and the primacy of European law over national law was one of the dominant topics of the European summit of the Twenty-Seven at the end of last week.

The head of the Polish nationalist conservative government, Mateusz Morawiecki, has pledged to abolish the disciplinary chamber, the abolition of which had already been announced in August by Warsaw but which continues to function. This body, at the heart of a controversial judicial reform, is accused by Brussels of undermining the autonomy of magistrates.

Poland replied, via a decision of its Constitutional Court on October 7, by declaring certain articles of European treaties incompatible with the national Constitution. A decision denounced by Brussels as an unprecedented attack on the primacy of European law and the jurisdiction, precisely, of the CJEU.
