The parliamentary administration and internal affairs committee recommended on Tuesday the adoption of an amendment to the act on the protection of the state border with amendments. The guests of “Kropki nad i” commented on its content. Magdalena Biejat (Together) said that “this is an act aimed at unconstitutional extension of the state of emergency without calling it a state of emergency”. According to Arkadiusz Czartoryski (Republican Party), the law “is very much needed”. – We all see in recent days that there is a huge escalation of this conflict – he added.
The parliamentary administration and internal affairs committee recommended on Tuesday adoption of an amendment to the act on the protection of the state border along with the amendments. 16 MPs voted in favor of the law, 12 were against, and no one abstained. The Sejm is to conduct a second reading of the bill late in the evening.
The project worked on by the commission allows for the introduction of a temporary ban on staying in a specific area of the border zone. The area and duration of the ban will be specified in the regulation of the minister of the interior and administration. The solution will not apply to residents of the prohibited area, people working there for gainful employment, as well as students or people using border crossings. The consent for the presence of other people, in particular journalists, may be expressed by the locally competent commander of the Border Guard post.
The guests of the Tuesday edition of “Kropka nad i” commented on the content of the project.
Biejat: this is a law that violates all standards
Biejat said that the Left will not vote for this project. “This is an act that violates all standards, which aims to unconstitutionally extend the state of emergency without calling it a state of emergency,” she said.
As she pointed out, “the law will again restrict the access of independent media to the border, which is one of our main complaints when it comes to the government’s policy in this situation.” – For 2.5 months we have been doomed to propaganda (Alyaksandr – ed.) Of Lukashenka, who shows how the media on his side allows it, how it “wonderfully” protects and nourishes those migrants that he actually uses for his dirty game, and there is silence on our side, which was introduced by the government – she said.
– This is a scandalous situation and we will not agree to its extension – added Biejat.
Czartoryski: in recent days we can see that there is a huge escalation of the conflict
Czartoryski said that “this law is very much needed”. “We all see in recent days that there is a huge escalation in this conflict,” he said.
– The attack on our border using stones, various objects, we can all see, so this security is also needed in the sense that the officers would have “comfort” at work – he assessed.
