The standard of work of the editorial office of “Czarno na biały” is the verification of information, contact with people who are the subject of reports and an attempt to obtain their statements.
While working on the report, its author Marta Gordziewicz made an attempt to contact all the judges whose names were mentioned in the media in 2019 in the context of the so-called hate scandal. These were contacts by phone or e-mail. Among the judges with whom the author contacted by phone was judge Konrad Wytrykowski. In this conversation, he refused to comment on the report because an interview with his attorney had been recorded earlier. However, he added that in the preparatory proceedings he has the status of an aggrieved party.
The material contains the position of judge Wytrykowski, who – as his attorney Bartosz Lewandowski said – feels like a victim of the media. In addition, the report contained information that most of the judges consistently denied that they had anything to do with the scandal.
The claims that the author manipulated the statements of Judge Cichocki or did not broadcast the statements of Judge Wytrykowski, because “it did not fit the assumption made in advance”, do not rely on the truth.
