Poland’s constitutional court rules: Polish law above European law

Posted on the 08/10/21

Poland’s constitutional court has ruled that in some cases, Polish law is above European law. The judgment came after the court was asked to look at the case by the Polish government, who did so after the Court of Justice of the European Union gave a strong verdict against the country’s process of appointing judges. 

The protection of the rule of law goes hand in hand with the protection of democracy, and both are considered strong parts of a Humanist society. The EHF therefore strongly condemns this attack, not only on the rule of law in Poland, but also on the rule of law in the EU. The protection of the rights of the citizens of Poland is vital, and we will continue our work to advocate for this.
