Interim measures

  • Interim measures amended in cases concerning Poland


    The ECHR has decided to amend interim measures previously indicated in the cases of Wróbel v. Poland, Synakiewicz v. Poland, Niklas-Bibik v. Poland and Piekarska-Drążek v. Poland concerning four judges facing disciplinary proceedings and at risk of imminent suspension from their judicial functions.

    The Court has decided to amend the wording of the interim measure previously granted in the above cases which now covers any body competent under the domestic law to deal with the applicants’ cases.

    The Court took this decision in the light of new developments, namely that the Disciplinary Chamber of the Supreme Court referred to in the previous interim measure in the case of Wróbel v. Poland has recently been replaced by a new Chamber of Professional Responsibility of the Supreme Court (Izba Odpowiedzialności Zawodowej Sądu Najwyższego).
