WATCH: Heated debate between Polish PM and the President of the EU Commission

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has accused the EU of blackmail in a debate about the Rule of Law inspired by EU Commission President, Ursula Von der Leyen.

This followed a decision by Poland’s High Court that it will not accept the main part of EU Legislation principles on a national level.

Von Der Leyen said she will take action as she will not accept that Poland denies European values.

In his reaction the Polish PM accused the EU of using threatening language and of its exceeding its powers.
