Yet another ruling of the #CJEU exposing how the PL government is destroying the independent judiciary beyond repair. It is alarm phase red now for the rule of law in Europe. @EU_Commission @vonderleyen have to immediately apply rule of law budget conditionality @RenewEurope
#ECJ: Successive amendments to the Law on the National Council of the Judiciary removing effective judicial review of its decisions proposing to the President of the Republic candidates for the office of judge at the Supreme Court are liable to infringe #EUlaw #RuleOfLaw #Poland
Maybe the point is that the #CJEU has already repeatedly ruled that Council Conclusions have no binding effect. Basically they can ramble all they like. The problem here is that the @EU_Commission is following instructions by the Council, violating the requirement of independence
If the EU Parliament were a serious institution, TODAY it'd have challenged the legality of the December EUCO's conclusions (as ultra vires)
By failing to defend its prerogatives, the EP loses its credibility - together with the EU - in upholding the #RuleOfLaw @larawoltersEU
PL and HU governments now flatly refuse to recognise the authority of the #CJEU and EU Treaties. Yet Commission @vonderleyen and Council keep treating them with velvet gloves in stead of standing tall for judges, women, LGBTI people, civil society, journalists, refugees
Scoop: Brexit deal to incl. interim solution to keep data flowing from 🇪🇺 to 🇬🇧 for 4 months (+2 month extension option) while the EU ratifies an adequacy decision. 🇬🇧 will be largely barred from changing its dp framework in the interim:
Wish @vonderleyen were as tough and determined on Polish govt demolishing deliberately and irreversably the rule of law as she is on EC ethics. By its refusal to act on #CJEU ruling on #muzzlelaw the @EU_Commission is complicit in the destruction of the independent judiciary
Meanwhile sorry to say we're seeing irresponsible procrastination on infringement front with Commission yet to issue reasoned opinion 4 months after launch of action against Poland's unprecedented #muzzlelaw with no sanction requested for open violation of April ECJ order re DC
@grimmse Not about St Margrethe or judicial supremacy. I too have a law degree (of sorts) and I was trained to think about what law means for citizens. I am concerned about inertia over multinational tax planning and I didn't see any bright ideas from the court today on this urgent issue.
The Hungarian Government's mistreatment of asylum seekers & failure to implement EU law once again shows Viktor Orban has no place in the mainstream of European politics. 🇪🇺
Imperative the rule of law & our European values are maintained. ⚖
#AG Pikamäe: #Hungary has failed to fulfil obligations arising from #EU law in relation to a substantial part of its legislation on asylum procedures and the return of illegally staying third-country nationals #asylumrights #refugees
+1In 2017 @EUCourtPress judged 🇪🇺🇨🇦 #PNR agreement incompatible with EU fundamental rights. #EUPNR Directive and EU-🇺🇸&🇦🇺 PNR agreements are equally contrary to Charter of Fundamental Rights. But @EU_Commission has been ignoring the #CJEU 🙉🙈🙊 & failed to act. Read my questions⤵️
+2National governments can shelve their Big Brother plans for now. Blanket data retention is NOT allowed under EU law says #CJEU Advocate General. Only targeted, temporary and in cases of imminent danger. And only with all safeguards proper for a democractic society. @EUCourtPress
“Three strikes you’re out” for authoritarianism this week. Polish law forcing 1/3 of judges into retirement struck down by #CJEU, Schengen travel ban lifted for @LyudaKozlovska, and EU Advocate General objects to new Polish Disciplinary Court. The Rule of law is resilient in EU!
Once again the #CJEU exposes the legal holes in security policies. @EU_Commission does not seem to learn any lessons (data retention, Safe Harbour, PNR, etc), and keeps churning out legally unsound proposals. At the expense of fundamental rights and the rule of law.
+1For many years #PNR passenger data of Europeans are being transferred to the US without adequate data protection. #CJEU ruled 🇪🇺-🇨🇦 #PNR agreement insufficient. No visible action by @EU_Commission to modify #PNR agreements. My questions to ➡️@JKingEU @VeraJourova& @Avramopoulos↘️
#CJEU deals blow to anti-choice activists seeking EU ban on abortion &stem cell research. Important consideration:”a ban on abortion funding in developing countries would constrain the EU’s ability to attain the objectives set out in the MDG, particularly that of maternal health” twitter.com/eucourtpress/s…
Scathing criticism by #WP29 regarding #PNR directive and agreements with US,Can,Austr. @EU_Commission basically disregards #CJEU and stubbornly applies EU law in violation of Charter of Fundamental Rights. ec.europa.eu/newsroom/artic… @JKingEU @VeraJourova @Avramopoulos @TimmermansEU
