The so-called judicial reforms in Poland are a severe blow to the common legal order in the EU, its foundation, which creates legal certainty and trust in the EU. Anyone who questions this – like the Polish government – is undermining this foundation.
The rule of law is non-negotiable and must never be. Merkel’s approach to try it with a lot of patience and even more compromises has crashed.
The Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki understood Merkel’s words as a template. At the summit, he did not show any insight and spoke again about his country being blackmailed by the EU. Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán even spoke of a witch hunt. This is nonsense.
