The document criticises a media bill approved by Poland’s lower house in August, calling it "an attempt to silence critical content and a direct attack on media pluralism.”

Beata Mazurek, a European lawmaker with Poland’s ruling conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party, distanced herself from the resolution. She defended the new Polish media bill, saying it was designed to help the country "protect its internal market."

“The bill is just a move to clarify an already existing law, not an attack on the media in Poland," Mazurek said.

She added: "We just want to protect our internal media market from interference by non-EU member states. This has nothing to do with violating the rule of law or attacking independent media."

Radio Poland's Michał Owczarek has the story.
