The country has not complied with a court decision
The European Commission is withholding 100 million EUR from Poland, Figaro said.
This has been confirmed by European Commissioner for Justice Didier Reynders.
“Poland has to pay one million euros a day for non-compliance with the decision. The accumulated amount is already over one hundred and sixty million EUR,” Reinders said.
The European decision provides for the termination of the disciplinary chamber for judges. It is believed to limit the independence of judges in the country.
The Polish government insists that the Chamber’s activities comply with all EU rules. Talks on the subject have been going on for a year. Poland is likely to reform the group to meet European requirements.
