Those working on #ruleoflaw issues should pay attention to documents produced by Commission & Council within "European Semester" framework

Possibly for first time Hungarian gov (seemingly) issued statement yesterday to protest against recital dedicated to judicial independence
Let's have a look at the "controversial" recital & compare Comm version to Council version. What do we see? Council did not honour itself by weakening Commission's accurate diagnosis using weasel phrasing but at least problems re judicial independence are explicitly noted
@rdanielkelemen @ProfKochenov @PlatonSbastien Different phrasing may be noted re Poland with again Council diluting accurate/justified criticism of Comm re #ruleoflaw situation
