Polish legal body rejects prosecutor request to arrest judge

Policemen guard Poland's Supreme Court as a protester lies on the pavement in Warsaw, Poland, on Thursday, April 22, 2021. A disputed disciplinary body within Poland's Supreme Court is examining a motion that could result in the arrest of a judge who has become a symbol of the fight for an independent judiciary. The Disciplinary Chamber is due to decide whether to force Judge Igor Tuleya to answer to prosecutors about charges related to a ruling that went against the interests of the ruling Law and Justice party. Sign read in Polish "Illegal ID - SN”, where ID means Disciplinary Chamber and SN means Supreme Court.
