Poland Faces EU Backlash Over Judicial Reforms

Interviews, news and analysis of the day’s global events.

Poland's prime minister has defended judicial reforms in his country, which require judges to retire when they turn sixty-five. He claimed that communist-era judges still sit in the country's Supreme Court.

The EU has accused Poland trying to control the judiciary and subvert democratic standards, with 40% of Supreme Court judges expected to be forced out.
