Poland will be referred to the European Court of Justice (ECJ) for violating in judicial independence, announced European Commission spokesperson Mina Andreeva at a press briefing in Brussels on Monday. The Commission believe Poland's new Supreme Court law violates «the principles of judicial independence» and «undermines the principle of judicial independence, including the irremovability of... Еще judges,» in the words of Andreeva. For that reason, the ECJ is being asked to implement «interim measures» to reverse legislation. The European Commission also accused the United Kingdom of failing to make custom duties available to the European Union budget, resulting in the loss of €2,7 billion between November 2011 and October 2017. «The United Kingdom has now two months to act, otherwise the Commission may refer the case to the Court of Justice of the European Union,» Andreeva stated.
