Changes in the justice system will affect the protection of citizens' rights - warns the CHR


Contrary to what one might expect, the adoption of the three Acts of Parliament relating to the judicial system: the Act on the National Council of the Judiciary, the Act on the System of Common Courts and the most recent Act on the Supreme Court does not serve the purpose of comprehensive reform of the judicial system. The aim is clear: to subordinate the courts to political authorities, warned Commissioner for Human Rights Adam Bodnar in his commentary for The CHR’s opinion on the reform of the judiciary was expressed already before. The Commissioner points out that the announced changes may affect the interests of ordinary citizens.
