Rule of Law
It’s a long way to ‘Polexit’
15 October 2021
It is too early to confirm the rumours of the Supreme Court’s death. Yet, civic society, NGOs, media and citizens should be watching the next developments very carefully.
At the beginning of the twenty-first century, the Polish Supreme Court has given inspiration to at least a few lasting portrayals in the perception of the public. Remember the mass protests around the building in July 2017, or the “chains of light” during that same summer.
Perhaps it was the President of the Court, Judge Małgorzata Gersdorf, arriving at work on 4 July 2018.
Everything is accelerating today, so in the four months of 2020, between 23 January and 23 May 2020, we were able to see at least two more, extremely symbolic paintings: a collective portrait of the judges of the Polish Supreme Court and an interior image of the judicial family.
