EU top court fines Poland amid legal row

Brussels, Oct 29 (TIWN) The top court of the European Union (EU) has fined Poland 1 million euros ($1.16 million) per day for ignoring a ruling of the bloc that called for the suspension of the country's Supreme Court disciplinary chamber.

The decision by the Court of Justice of the EU (ECJ) is the latest episode of a clash between Poland and the EU institutions over the rule of law, reports Xinhua news agency.  The European Commission had requested the financial penalty until the Polish government acts to improve the functioning of the Polish Supreme Court and suspends new laws deemed to undermine judicial independence.
