POLISH PROTESTORS TOOK THE STREETS OVER RULE OF LAW




İrem UZUN -TDO- Protesters in Poland have held demonstrations across the country to express their solidarity with judges who say they are facing increased political pressure and intimidation from the right-wing government. One judge was suspended for questioning the ruling party’s judicial reforms, in a sign that concerns over the rule of law will mark its second term in power.

Since taking office in 2015, Law and Justice (PiS) has been at loggerheads with the European Union over reforms which critics say undermine judicial independence.The suspension of Judge Pawel Juszczyszyn last week brought the issue back to the fore.“I believe that law and honesty will win in the end...I call on judges-don’t let yourselves be frightened, be independent, be brave, we are strong” Juszczyszyn told protesters in front of the Ministry of Justice in Warsaw.The largest protest Sunday took place in the Warsaw, in front of the Justice Ministry. Polish media reported that protests were also held in a total of 105 cities and towns, including Gdansk and Krakow.
