The Court considered the danger that the courts in Poland that will have to adjudicate the criminal case of the person claimed will not be able to reach a conclusion independently, in part due to the possibility of disciplinary procedures. Disciplinary procedures have been instituted against at least two judges in the courts that will assess the criminal case against the person claimed. One of these judges is the presiding judge of the court. The disciplinary proceedings are executed by a disciplinary chamber whose independence and impartiality are not guaranteed. In addition, the Court has noted that the case of the 33-year-old Polish man, as a result of the prejudicial question put to the European Court of Justice, has not only resulted in broad interest amongst politicians and the media in Poland, but is of special interest to the Polish authorities that comprise the executive branch of government. A memorandum from the procurator general to all Polish public prosecutors, which discusses this specific case, is evidence of this. Questions addressed to the Polish authorities by the Court with regard to the situation in Poland were also only partially answered. The International Legal Assistance Division is of the opinion that as a result of all these factors, there is a danger that the systemic shortcomings will, in fact, impact on the trial of the person claimed. For this reason, in this case the Court has decided against surrender to Poland.
