Ceta, Poland and human rights on the agenda this week
In January this year, the European Commission opened up a probe on the rule of law in Poland, using for the first time a framework created in 2014.
On 27 July, the EU executive presented its findings and declared that the Law and Justice (PiS) government had passed laws posing a “systemic threat” to rule of law. It gave Poland three months to comply with a list of recommendations aimed at restoring the independence of the judicial system.
