Petition Summary  

The petitioner calls for a special committee of inquiry to be set up to look into alleged problems with the functioning of the Polish public prosecution service. The petitioner maintains that citizens’ rights are being breached in Poland as a result of the unconstitutional changes that have been made to the legal order since the current Polish government came to power in 2015. The issues raised by the petitioner include the merger of the offices of Prosecutor General and Minister of Justice, and the politicisation of law enforcement agencies.
