P-008355/2016(ASW)
Answer given by Ms Jourová on behalf of the Commission
Question reference: P-008355/2016

It is the Commission policy not to comment or intervene on individual cases pending before national courts.

The Rule of Law Framework(1) which the Commission adopted in March 2014 is intended to address emerging systemic threats to the rule of law before they rise to the level where recourse to Article 7 of the Treaty on European Union would prove necessary, in particular in situations which cannot be effectively addressed by infringement procedures and if the ‘rule of law safeguards’ which exist at national level no longer seem capable of effectively addressing these threats.

The Commission has no indications that the safeguards provided by the national legal system are not capable of effectively protecting the rule of law in Spain.
