Warsaw will do legal reforms but not by legal imperative of the EU

The Polish Government has announced this Tuesday that it will apply reforms in the legal field, but disclaims them from any "legal imperative" since the European Union (EU) after the failure that challenges the constitutionality of Community legislation.

The Polish Deputy Minister of Justice, Sebastian Kaleta, has affirmed in a television interview that Warsaw plans "very serious" changes in "hundreds of new articles and laws" to show the "good will" of the government, but that will not make it moved "by Legal imperative "some.

Its declaration is known after the earthquake caused by the ruling of the Constitutional Court (TC) Polish, which last week considered several parts of the EU country's accession treaty contrary to the EU Treaty.

That judgment, which attacks one of the foundations of the EU - the primacy of Community law on national legislation - has been followed by the declaration of the Polish Government on its intention that the country remains within the Union to promote its reform from within .

According to Kaleta, which underlined the government's support for the TC judgment, the executive carries "for a long time" changes in the legal field.

"The Constitutional Court has shown in the last days that we have good will and no (there are) a legal obligation, and for that reason we can now resume the completion of the reform (judicial)," said Deputy Minister.

Likewise, Kaleta said that "Poland does not have to request the European authorities to accept their changes in the Polish National Judicial System" and added that "it does not fit in my imagination, which occurs a mandate of Brussels to force specific changes" .

In the interview, Vice Minister compared the Polish judicial organization with the German and affirmed that "in Germany there is the most politicized judges system in Europe, perhaps one of the most politicized in the world, and what is happening?, Which Germany He dares to criticize Poland for defending his constitution. "

"We are a sovereign state, we can not allow us to treat us like a colony or a double standard," he concluded.

According to Kaleta, "if the judgments of the EU Court of Justice to Germany should be applied, they would have to change their constitution."

The vice minister abounded in its criticism of the EU and accused it of "torpedoar" and trying to "stop" the judicial reform that Warsaw undertook in 2015 through "continuous disputes".

Kaleta added: "Since 2018 we began to try to demonstrate to the European Commission, as a gesture of goodwill, that the reform (judicial) is constitutional and does not violate independence (from the judiciary); but it was abused this good will to usurp functions They go beyond the legal framework.
