The Court of Justice of the European Union upheld all the allegations of the European Commission and stated that Poland had breached its obligations under EU law. He also obliged Poland to "immediately suspend" the activities of the Disciplinary Chamber. However, the Polish authorities do not intend to take into account the CJEU judgment and attack the Commission, accusing it of discrimination.
On the other hand, the EC expressed deep concern about the judgment of the Constitutional Tribunal issued on the same day (July 14), which found the EU treaty incompatible with the Polish constitution. Moreover, it assured that it would not “hesitate to use the powers of the Treaty to ensure the uniform application and integrity of EU law”.
“The Commission has always been very clear on this point and reaffirms it: EU law takes precedence over national law. All judgments of the European Court of Justice, including the provisions on interim measures, are binding on the national authorities and courts of all Member States,” Eric Mamer, spokesman for the European Commission, emphasized.
