PACE President concerned by threat to the Rule of Law in Poland

“I call on my parliamentary colleagues in Poland not to enact – precipitously – legislation relating to the Constitutional Tribunal which may seriously undermine the Rule of Law,” said Anne Brasseur, President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE).

She added: “To propose far-reaching restrictions of the powers of a judicial institution, whose independence is constitutionally guaranteed, is a matter which merits in-depth reflection.”
