Practice Relating to Rule 100. Fair Trial Guarantees
Section K. Public proceedings
In 2004, in its fifth periodic report to the Human Rights Committee, Poland stated:
As to their principle, court proceedings are public. Exceptions to the public nature of hearings may be made exclusively for reasons of the breach of public order, morality, infringement of an important private interest or if the public hearing would result in a disclosure of circumstances which due to the important interest of the State should remain undisclosed. Judgments are always announced publicly.
