How independent judges are harassed in PiS’s and Ziobro’s Poland [Osiatyński’s Archive’s analysis]
The system of repression of judges defending the rule of law has been changing over the years. What measures are used today to intimidate defenders of the rule of law? Osiatyński Archive’s special analysis
Ziobro takes the courts in Poznań. When the lawyers found out who the new presidents were, they thought it was a joke
The new presidents of the Poznań courts had not been promoted for years; they had low appraisals, they made mistakes that were sometimes so embarrassing as sentencing innocent people. Now Ziobro is giving them a huge amount of power. The judges have been stirred up.
Vilification of suspended Judge Maciej Ferek. Illegal neo-NCJ and Ziobro’s former classmate in action
The illegal and politicised neo-NCJ turns itself into a lynch mob and turns citizens against Judge Maciej Ferek from Kraków. It publishes protected court surveillance footage in conflict with the law and breaches the secrecy of correspondence in order to discredit the judge.
Ziobro’s ‘enforcer’ strikes at Gersdorf. For the resolution of the three chambers of the Supreme Court on neo-judges and the neo-NCJ

New Supreme Court chamber strikes at Zbigniew Ziobro: the minister cannot suspend judges for judgments passed
The temporary Chamber of Professional Liability assessed the decision of the Minister of Justice to suspend an independent judge for the first time. And held that Zbigniew Ziobro had groundlessly suspended Judge Marzanna Piekarska-Drążek for applying CJEU and ECtHR rulings
Despite the war, PiS is on a collision course with the EU and wants to elect a neo-NCJ mk II. People associated with Ziobro will end up there.
The Law and Justice party (PiS) is continuing to breach the rule of law and exacerbate the conflict with the EU. The ruling party has already agreed on a list of 15 candidates for the neo-NCJ II, which gives nominations to judges. It will be even worse than the current one, because the list contains “hawks” headed by Łukasz Piebiak.
If Brussels buys Duda’s offer, it will turn judges into fools and condemn Poland to a drift towards dictatorship
The European Commission is to decide whether to unfreeze billions for Poland from the EU’s Reconstruction Fund. It should not ‘buy’ President Duda’s or the Law and Justice party’s (PiS’s) offer. It needs to demand the full restoration of the rule of law. Otherwise, it will condemn the courts to ultimate destruction, reward ‘sly judges’ and antagonise the judicial community.

They were most probably afraid of the recording of Jarosław Kaczyński and Gerald Birgfellner as the latter handed Jarosław Kaczyński 50,000 zlotys in an envelope – this is what Roman Giertych says in a special recording about the reasons for using the Pegasus program against him. “From what experts at the University of Toronto told me, this was the most aggressive use of Pegasus they had observed,” he said.
