“It’s worth considering a different cause of the issues of Polish judiciary. It’s neither money nor procedures, but an overgrown corporation, which became like a so-called “state within a state”. It’s above any mechanism of democratic control. Without that control, it put its own corporatist goals above the society which it was supposed to serve. So I’m not only quoting my own diagnoses, let me refer to several quotes which are worth remembering. It’s worth stressing, that it’s not true, that the changes we are proposing, aimed at implementing such democratic mechanisms as balance of power and transparency in the appointing of judges, are an attack on the rule of law, an attack on the judiciary''- says Zbigniew Ziobro, Minister of Justice.
