5 Member States support the European Commission in Case 791/19: what they said
Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands, Sweden, and Finland support the European Commission and demand the Court of Justice declares that the Polish government violates the Union law in case C-791/19 regarding the disciplinary system for judges
Repressions for independence. A prosecutor did not want to arrest participants of the protest, so he was transferred.
Prosecutor Wojciech Pełeszok did not want to support the arrests of demonstrators. He was posted to a prosecution office at a level lower. This is how you break someone’s back: punishing, for example, for taking advantage of the guarantee of independence. Other prosecutors see this – and prefer to be obedient.

Why Hungary and Poland Block the EU Budget Deal
The Hungarian and Polish governments are united in defending their autocratizing political models, whatever it takes politically. However, there is also a significant difference between Poland and Hungary. While Poland is largely free from large-scale, systemic corruption plaguing EU funds, the Hungarian regime’s political-economic model is based on state-led, centralized corruption structures and the deliberate misuse of EU funds.
The ‘Disciplinary Chamber’ has suspended Judge Tuleya and allowed criminal charges to be brought against him
The illegally constituted Disciplinary Chamber has lifted the immunity of Judge Igor Tuleya, which will allow the National Prosecutor’s Office to bring absurd criminal charges against him for admitting journalists to an announcement of a ruling which was important to the public. Tuleya was also suspended from his duties as a judge and had his salary reduced by 25%.
The ‘good change’ is going for the Supreme Administrative Court
The current authority will have increasingly greater control over the Supreme Administrative Court, which is at the same level of importance as the Supreme Court.
