Today in Strasbourg, a high-level discussion has been held within the European Institutions and in presence of the Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydło on the recent developments in Poland which may threaten the Rule of Law (potential outreach of the independence of the Constitutional Court and media).

Led by the Socialist & Democrat Group, MEPs will vote on a resolution during the next plenary session (1-4 February) and hope this strong signal will be heard by the Polish government.
