On Friday, Onet announced that it was going to be online the database on the resources of the Polish army has been leaked. It has 1,757,390 entries, which are – as the portal said – “extremely valuable to foreign interviews.” The Ministry of National Defense in a statement said that “the case is being analyzed in detail by the services”. “It is now being clarified whether a leak occurred and whether the disclosed file was actually produced by the Polish Armed Forces” – added.
KO calls on Błaszczak to resign
Onet’s publication was commented on by politicians in the Sejm on Friday. – You have to ask yourself why the agencies of the present countries should operate in Poland, if the Polish ministry puts the most important database on the Internet. So far, no one has caused such great damage in terms of state security as the PiS government under Jarosław Kaczyński – said Cezary Tomczyk, head of the Civic Coalition club.
He judged that “this should never happen”. – I wish we would not approach this matter as with any other scandal of this government. 1.7 million items in the database on the security of our country are now in foreign hands – he emphasized.
– You, Minister Błaszczak, are to blame for what is happening in the Polish army. In addition to the fact that the Polish state does not modernize its army, there is the largest leak in the history of Poland in terms of military data. We demand the resignation of Minister Mariusz Błaszczak, said Tomczyk.
The left wing asks for a NIK audit in the defense ministry
The head of the Left-wing club, Krzysztof Gawkowski, stated that “the Ministry of National Defense has allowed the Polish army and the Polish army to feel cheated”. – Over the years, the data collected on tanks, airplanes, software, due to the incompetence of people in the Ministry of National Defense, probably fell into the hands of other intelligence services. A terrible amount of information has been disclosed – he stressed.
– There is no consent for this matter to be kept silent. That is why the Left is already submitting an application to the Supreme Audit Office to carry out an inspection at the Ministry of National Defense, he informed.
He added that his group would also ask the Military Intelligence Service and the Military Counterintelligence Service for “information about what remedial actions have been taken in this case, what data was involved and whether personal data were also accidentally disclosed”.
– We call on Minister Błaszczak for information at the next session of the Sejm, let him tell the truth about this leak – appealed the deputy.
