The ICEL is delighted to host an afternoon seminar on the CJEU’s judgment in Minister for Justice and Equality v Celmer. In March Judge Aileen Donnelly refused to extradite Mr Celmer to Poland and instead referred two questions to the CJEU. The High Court had concerns that Mr Celmer would not get a fair trial in Poland as a result of recent reforms of that country’s legal system by the ruling right wing government. The case has generated significant international coverage and could be one of the most significant judgments every delivered by the European courts.
