Association of Polish Judges Statement

Association of Polish Judges “Iustitia” strongly condemns the unprecedented attack on Judge Aileen Donnelly by the few Polish news media.

This attack directed against a judge is contrary to the values adopted by Polish society and constitutes a violation of the democratic principle that empowers the mass media to criticize judgments of courts and not particular judges.

Association of Polish Judges “Iustitia” expresses solidarity with Judge Aileen Donnelly and all other Irish judges in defense of the democratic values of an independent judiciary.
