16/02/2017 – As the European Commission is set soon to examine Poland’s response to its Recommendations under the Rule of Law Framework, NGOs are writing in support of the Commission’s assessment that there is a steady deterioration of the rule of law in Poland. We believe that this assessment, combined with concerns over the existence of a ‘clear risk of a serious breach’ by the Polish government of the values referred to in Article 2 TEU warrants you to resort to the procedure laid down in Article 7 of the Treaty on European Union (TEU).
