January 30, 2023. - Juszczyszyn v. Poland - The Grand Chamber has rejected the Polish government's request for the case to be heard before the Grand Chamber. and as a result, the judgment has become final. The Strasbourg Court of Human Rights ruled that the Polish state violated Article 18 of the Convention by applying disproportionate repressive measures against Judge Paweł Juszczyszyn, which unjustifiably interfered with Judge Juszczyszyn's right to private life and to professional development. In the Court's view, dissuading the judge from reviewing the legality of judicial appointments on the recommendation of the reformed National Judicial Council constituted and suspending the applicant for issuing a procedural decision that was intended to safeguard a party's right to an "independent and impartial court appointed by law" enshrined in Article 6(1) of the Convention, as well as in Article 45(1) of the Polish Constitution and Article 47 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights was a violation of the Convention principles, and in particular was contrary to the fundamental principles of judicial independence and the rule of law.
