    The illiberal drive in Poland is gaining momentum and it seems that the tank commandeered by Jarosław Kaczyński, the leader of Prawo i Sprawiedliwość Party (Law and Justice sic!), will not be easily stopped. With the on-going assault on the country’s judiciary, the stakes are high. If the course of action is not altered, the EU will find itself at the end of the summer break with a member state whose law and justice are served not by independent courts but rather by a political party. The proposed reforms of the judiciary not only breach the Polish Constitution but they also manifestly violate the values of the European Union laid down in Art. 2 TEU.
