EU rejects Polish bill on judicial reform

The Polish law on reform of the constitutional tribunal "does not address a number of important concerns" and "raises some new ones", a European Commission spokesman told press in Brussels on Monday. He said the commission would "shortly" take up the matter again under a new rule of law monitoring process.
