Commission Vice President Valdis Dombrovskis said the commission had "agreed to start an infringement procedure by sending a letter of formal notice" to Warsaw. The announcement of the infringement procedure came despite Polish President Andrzej Duda saying last week he would propose amending the law on the panel after criticism from the EU's executive and the United States.
