Five years ago the Sejm adopted a resolution on defending the sovereignty of the Republic of Poland and the rights of its citizens

According to the Constitution, the Republic of Poland is a sovereign, democratic state under the rule of law. Recently the sovereignty of our country has been violated, undermining at the same time the principles of democracy, legal order and social peace in Poland.

                The pretext for such actions is the issue of the political dispute over the Constitutional Tribunal. The Sejm of the Republic of Poland states that civil rights and freedoms are not threatened in our country. New legal solutions regarding the Constitutional Tribunal can only be established as a result of a dialogue conducted in the Sejm of the Republic of Poland. The parliamentary majority is ready to seek such a compromise in cooperation with opposition parties.

                In the institutions of the European Union, attempts are also being made to impose decisions on Poland concerning immigrants who have come to Europe. The announced decisions to solve this problem have no basis in European law, violate the sovereignty of our country, European values and the principle of subsidiarity of the European Union. They also threaten the social order in Poland, the safety of its citizens, its civilization heritage and national identity.

                The Sejm of the Republic of Poland calls on the government to oppose all actions against the sovereignty of the state and states that it is the duty of the government to defend the national interest and the constitutional order in the Republic.

Five years after the Sejm passed its resolution, the judges of the Disciplinary Chamber of the Supreme Court issued a statement noting the increase in actions by European Union bodies and entities that undermine Poland's sovereignty:

On the fifth anniversary of the adoption by the Polish Parliament of a resolution to defend the sovereignty of the Republic of Poland and the rights of its citizens, we, the undersigned judges of the Supreme Court:

- stating that the violations of the sovereignty of our State indicated in the resolution, which at the same time undermine the legal order in Poland, not only have not ceased, but have recently increased dramatically due to the actions of certain bodies and entities of the European Union which have no basis in law, including European law, The most drastic example of this is the undermining of the supremacy of the Constitution of the Republic of Poland in the legal order of the Republic of Poland, and thus directly undermining the sovereignty of our State and persuading Polish judges not to apply the Constitution of the Republic of Poland, and thus to openly disobey the oath taken by judges, the refusal of which is tantamount to renouncing the judicial office.

- we point out that the conscious withdrawal by a judge in his official actions from the oath, including the duty of faithful service to the Republic of Poland and the obligation to uphold the law, the supreme normative act of which is the Constitution of the Republic of Poland, may be treated as tantamount to the resignation from the office of a judge and also constitutes a breach of the basic duties of a Polish citizen towards his own State.

We make this statement public, with particular emphasis on those state bodies whose task is to guard the sovereignty and the rule of law of the Republic of Poland.
