The European Commission is set to unblock up to €137 billion in cohesion and recovery funds for Poland, which until now has been unable to access the cash over rule-of-law concerns.

According to report in EuroNews, the announcement was made by President Ursula von der Leyen during a trip to Poland on Friday, where she spoke next to Prime Minister Donald Tusk.

The breakthrough comes days after Polish officials travelled to Brussels to present an “action plan” of nine draft bills aimed at restoring judicial independence from the country’s highest tribunal to the lower courts. 

“We are impressed by your efforts and those of the Polish people to restore the rule of law as the backbone of your society. A society where everyone plays by the rules. A society where people and businesses can trust the institutions and can hold authorities to account,” von der Leyen said after meeting the premier.
