Health Minister Adam Niedzielski referred to the tweet published by the pharmacist Olga Sierpniowska, in which she posted a photo with the slogan attacking the head of the health ministry, referring to the controversial words spoken by the Confederation MP Grzegorz Braun to the minister. “Everyone should answer whether hate should be tolerated” – wrote Adam Niedzielski.
Pharmacist Olga Sierpniowska posted a photo of her garage, in which someone wrote: “False pandemic, Niedzielski will hang”.
“These are the effects of calling for aggression and hatred from the parliamentary rostrum. It was not only a direct threat, but also a desire to provoke a reaction of fanatics. Let everyone answer whether hate should be tolerated” – Health Minister Adam Niedzielski wrote on Twitter on Thursday.
Investigation into Braun’s words to Niedzielski
This is how the Minister of Health referred to the recent controversial words of Grzegorz Braun. The Confederation MP in the Sejm spoke about the future “indictment” for the actions of the government and the Ministry of Health during the COVID-19 pandemic. After the time for his speech ran out and the microphone was turned off, Braun shouted towards Niedzielski, who was sitting in the government pews: “You will hang!”
The District Prosecutor’s Office in Warsaw initiated an investigation into the words of MP Braun against Minister Niedzielski. The notification on this matter was received by the prosecutor’s office from the Marshal of the Sejm, Elżbieta Witek. The head of the health ministry also submitted a notification to the prosecutor’s office in this case.
