“The EU’s procedure for inspecting the rule of law in Poland is illegal. We should not submit to it,” declared former Foreign Minister and PiS MEP Witold Waszczykowski

Waszczykowski referred to the vice president of the European Commission for Values and Transparency, Věra Jourová, and her potential meeting with Polish authorities to discuss the rule of law, which she announced on Tuesday.

“If Mrs. Jourová comes to Poland, she will see that nothing wrong is happening,” the MEP said in an interview for wPolityce.pl.

He explained that he does not share the opinions of Didier Reynders, the EU’s new commissioner for justice, that there has been a negative turn of events in Poland and Hungary. Waszczykowski emphasized that there is nothing out of the ordinary in Poland’s ongoing attempt to reform the judiciary in Poland and that “the European Commission or any other European institution has no right to interfere.”
