Institute’s Rule of Law Guide Used in Heated Debate in Polish Parliament

Over the past year, Poland has put in place a number of new restrictions on media and the ruling party, Law and Justice, has effectively taken control of the constitutional tribunal, the top court in the country.

For these, and other moves by the ruling party to consolidate power, the EU and rights groups have criticized Poland for undermining rule of law.

In a recent debate in Polish Parliament, a politician held the Raoul Wallenberg Institute’s rule of law guide in his hand and handed it over to the leaders of the ruling party. The incident was videotaped. You can watch it here.
