EC Unfreezes Assets From EU Funds For Poland

According to a statement posted on the European Commission’s website on Thursday, the European Commission approved two legislative measures that allow it to unfreeze approximately €137 billion given to Poland in the midst of the nation’s efforts to promote judicial independence.

« Today the European Commission adopted two legal acts that will open Poland’s access to EU funding of up to €137 billion, » reads the statement.

The European Commission came to the conclusion that Warsaw had successfully reformed the disciplinary system for judges in order to carry out two « supersteps » that would reinforce the independence of the Polish judiciary. The EC also commented the nation’s implementation of the Arachne IT technology, which helps audit and control systems in EU member states and offers fraud protection.

Poland will therefore get up to €76.5 billion in cohesion funds and up to €59.8 billion from the Pandemic Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF). €6.3 billion from the RRF will be distributed in the upcoming weeks.
