BRIEF: EC Head: Withholding RRF Funds An Option In Poland Spat

(MNI) Brussels

EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen told the European Parliament Tuesday that withholding Recovery Fund money from Poland was one option the EU had in its current battle with Poland over rule of law breaches.

"The Polish government has to explain us how it intends to protect European money, given this ruling of their constitutional court," von der Leyen said.

Poland has requested a total of EUR23.9 billion in grants under the RRF and EUR12.1 billion in loans under its yet-to-be approved recovery plan. For the moment, the Commission is continuing to "carefully assess" the recent ruling of the Polish constitutional court, she said.
