The plenary session of the European Parliament this Thursday denounced the undemocratic tendency of the ultra-conservative Polish government to turn the Constitutional Court into “an instrument for the legalization” of its activities and urged other European governments and the European Commission to do the necessary Take legal action to block the disbursement of funds while the rule of law is under threat.

The text also includes words of encouragement to Polish society demonstrating against the controversial Warsaw reforms and messages of support for judges who risk sanctions for following European regulations or referring to the EU Court of Justice.

MEPs are calling for strong measures to address all of this: from the opening of a new sanctions dossier for the last constitutional judgment that calls into question the primacy of Community law, to the activation of the conditionality mechanism that would allow the disbursement of collection funds to be frozen.

They also advocate blocking the Polish reform and investment plan pending approval by the Community executive in order to gain access to European aid, and that payments of other funds already earmarked in the Community budget should be suspended due to deficiencies in monitoring their use .

They also address the heads of state and government of the European Union who are meeting in Brussels this Thursday and Friday for a European Council and demand that they make a statement in the “most energetic terms” at the end of the meeting.

MEPs stress that these measures are not aimed at punishing the Polish people, but rather at restoring the rule of law in Poland in the face of its continued deterioration, and call on the Commission to find mechanisms to ensure that European money reaches its beneficiaries directly.
