Monia, isn't it the case that the prosecutor is obliged to investigate thoroughly and cannot drop an investigation?
This not true , of course ; a prosecutor supervises cases( which are not conducted by him ) and the police investigates them under the prosecutor`s supervision and when there is not enough evidence the case will be discontinued
This means in reality that a prosecutor will never bother to supervise any case when the police will not present him with sufficient evidences .
BTW It would be fair if that newspaper would send his men to make some enquiries here in Poland and not assuming everything .
Having 5 Judges in the whole british system for the purpose of EAW is simply a farce .
Poland issues EAW for very minor offenses.
It is up to a polish judge to decide not English Policeman nor English judge .
The purpose of EAW is to bring a criminal under the justice system of every member state in every case which is already pending even in small petty crimes (two exeptions were mentioned about in my some other post) to give the public the feeling they live in a secure system where every criminal will be prosecuted , sentenced and punished .
In my opinion you can blame either the British system for the whole situation or Polish criminals who think they could escape the justice by simply leaving Poland and fleeing to England . To their surprise this is not a case any more under the new system of EAW .
Poland issues as many EAW as it is needed and nothing more . If it makes the largest amount among of all countries, this means nothing , but the fact that polish criminals feel comfortable to escape Poland and seek quiet asylum in England.
Poland's legal system seems to be in such a mess that it isn't stopping EAW's being used - even when it's clearly against Polish law to do so.
On which specific evidence is your expertise based upon . Maybe you should start consulting Polish Ministry of Justice to reform that system as an expert with such an experience and deep reflections .
In turn, if we compare the expenditure on courts throughout the state budget , it turns out that Poland spends quite a lot ! Bo spent on Themis more than twice the percentage of the state budget than Germany and nearly three times higher than France and Italy .
There are 8800 judges in Poland .
The most reliable way to assess if money sent to justice system are big or small is to compare them with all budgetary expenditures as justice is part of a budget .
Poland`s expenditures on justice system go as the second largest in Europe just behind Norway , at the level of 1.78 % of the state budget.
England spends the less money in its budgetary expenditures in Europe at the level of 0.14 % of the state`s budget . It is time for England to spend more , isnt it ?
