In the draft resolution, paragraph 7.1, delete the following words:

"undermine the impartiality and independence of the Prosecution Service and make it vulnerable to politicisation and abuse. The Assembly considers that these two functions need to be separated urgently and that sufficient safeguards against abuse and politicisation of the prosecution service need to be introduced in the law. It calls upon the Polish authorities to do so as a matter of priority;"
