And of course, the overall effect of that is really, very chilling effect on the judiciary. It is so restrictive that it may impact very much on the willingness to, you know, get involved in important and legitimate legal arguments and discussions." JOURNALISTS LISTENING (SOUNDBITE) (English) SPOKESMAN FOR UNITED NATIONS OFFICE FOR THE HIGH COMMISSIONER FOR HUMAN RIGHTS (OHCHR), RUPERT COLVILLE, SAYING: "We urge the Polish government and the members of the parliament - Sejm - to consider carefully the potential impact of this draft legislation on the rule of law in Poland. As a state party to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, Poland is required to ensure the independence of the judiciary, and as an incoming member of the U.N. Human Rights Council, Poland is also expected to set a high standard of compliance with international human rights law. Any measures which are contrary to the separation of powers and the independence of the judiciary should immediately be lifted." WARSAW, POLAND (RECENT - DECEMBER 1, 2019) (REUTERS) (NIGHT SHOTS) POSTER BEING HELD IN AIR, READING (Polish): "BRAVO!

It could even result in judges being dismissed if they question the government's judicial reform."

In general, it risks further undermining the already heavily challenged independence of the judiciary in Poland." JOURNALISTS LISTENING NEWS BRIEFING IN PROGRESS U.N. SPHERE AND FLAG
