Disciplinary Liability of a Judge of the Polish Constitutional Tribunal
The essence of the article is to present the concept, function and principles of disciplinary liability and the mode of disciplinary proceedings against judges of the Constitutional Tribunal in the context of the ongoing dispute over the independence of each of these constitutional state organs. Disciplinary liability arose from sources of repressive liability and is a special type of criminal liability due to the functions it performs, but also a high degree of ailment. The author argues that despite numerous legal provisions, the model of conduct has not changed, as well as are based on misunderstood axiology, bypassing the principle of nemo iudex in causa sua. I propose, in accordance with the principle of objectivity (impartiality), to submit only disciplinary judges of the Constitutional Tribunal to the Supreme Court for consideration with the simultaneous adoption of an identical mutual principle with respect to judges of the Supreme Court.
