The Association of Polish Judges “Iustitia” adopted a position on Zbigniew Ziobro’s decision to release 24-year-old Marika from prison. They criticized the “lack of any information activity” on the part of the court and Ziobro’s words. The judges also wrote that “in the face of the media campaign and threats against the judge, the clerk who issued the judgment in question” demanded that the services “ensure her protection and safety”.

Marika, 24, was sentenced to three years in prison. She did a year. In mid-July, a Catholic, far-right organization Ordo Iuris launched a social campaign to convince the president Andrzej Duda to pardon the 24-year-old. “Together with three other people, in a gesture of opposition to the promotion of far-left ideologies, she tried to snatch a bag in the colors of the movement from a woman LGBT. She was subsequently charged,” wrote Ordo Iuris.

By decision of the Minister of Justice and the Prosecutor General Zbigniew Ziobro The 24-year-old was released. The law allows for a break in punishment during the course of the pardon proceedings.

Journalists from “Gazeta Wyborcza” reached the verdict, which shows that the convicted 24-year-old, together with another convict, used “violence in the form of pulling, pushing and twisting the third finger of the left hand.” “As a result of the struggle, the assaulted woman suffered injuries such as bruises on her hand and a sprain of the distal phalangeal joint of her left hand” – it was described.

Iustitia appeals to the court and protests against Ziobro’s statements

The Wielkopolska branch of the Association of Polish Judges “Iustitia” adopted a position on Marika.

The associated judges “expressed their deep disapproval of the lack of any information activity” of the Poznań court. They demanded “immediate reaction and taking a position on the matter in question, in which all the basic circumstances of the case will be explained in an objective and reliable manner, in particular, we expect a full description of the act attributed to the convicted Marika M., its full legal qualification, the statutory threat resulting from this qualification , informing who submitted the application for clemency of the convict and how this application was reviewed by the competent authorities”.

Iustitia “expresses a firm protest against the unacceptable in the context of the principle separation of powers statements of the Minister of Justice, Prosecutor General Zbigniew Ziobro regarding the judgment in question”.

Iustitia “demands to ensure the protection of the judge who issued the verdict” in Marika’s case

The judges also wrote that “in the face of the media campaign and threats against the judge, the clerk who issued the judgment in question” demanded that the services “ensure her protection and safety”.

Bartłomiej Przymusiński, a spokesman for Iustitia, spoke about the “attacks” on the judge at a press briefing.

– A judge who acts on the basis of the law, within the law, has the right to ensure that the state ensures her safety, and Poles have the right to ensure that their daughters and mothers feel safe on the streets, so that there is no situation where for the fact that someone has a bag of this color and not another, he is robbed on this street by some group with the use of violence – said Przymusiński.

– Patriotism is not about attacking someone for their views. A true patriot obeys the law. And this is what we wanted to convey to the public that the court issues a judgment based on the law and this judgment is intended to ensure that Polish women and men feel safe on the streets of their cities, emphasized the spokesman.
