Andrzej Szejna submitted a notification of suspected crime to the prosecutor’s office and the National Labor Inspectorate in the case of Minister Michał Cieślak. – Dismissal is not enough, in our opinion, the matter is not over; the minister has exceeded his powers – said the MP from the Left.
MP Andrzej Szejna stated on Saturday that the resignation of Minister Michał Cieślak, in connection with his complaint against the head of the post office in Pacanów, was insufficient. He also informed that he had reported the case to the prosecutor’s office and the National Labor Inspectorate.
– In our opinion, this matter is not over, the fact that Minister Cieślak was dismissed is obvious. This is not only and only the only possible and sufficient punishment. I have submitted a notification of suspicion of a crime committed by Minister Cieślak of exceeding his powers. I hope finally the prosecutor’s office Zbigniew Ziobro he will deal with ordinary matters of Poles, such as persecution at work, such as persecution due to political views – Szejna said on Saturday in Kielce.
The deputy head of the Left added that he had also submitted a notification in this matter to the National Labor Inspectorate.
