Polish authorities have a duty of care to ensure other EU member states can execute European Arrest Warrants without fear of those extradited being subjected to a tainted judicial process. That duty of care is reciprocally shared by all member states. This has nothing to do with trade and everything to do with the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union and other relevant Treaties. The ECJ is not a "political forum of "last resort"", but an agreed judicial forum to enforce those rights.

Uniformity of laws among EU member-states is a political goal of EU government.
Thank you for not asking, What is the first political forum? I have asked the question, and it is not some generalized expectation or expression of "trust" that the conduct of persons will | should | could be uniform and predictable; or that the conduct of all persons has been or is known to be perforce socially acceptable and harmless to others.
To the contrary: The knowledge, primordial and current, that personal conduct is not uniform, predictable, and necessarily harmless to others provokes people to erect institutions of law said to codify socially acceptable and socially unacceptable conduct as well as law enforcement among people to compel their obedience to such rules and combinations thereof (algorithms) for purported "civilized" behavior.
These institutions together are called government.
And howsoever government is formed by people, the people's discourse and agreement to its terms, rewards, and punishments is the first political forum.
Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
