Donald Tusk met on Sunday with the inhabitants of Żywiec in the Silesian Voivodeship. At the beginning of the meeting, he referred to the accident of the government column Beata Szydło in Oświęcim in 2017. At the end of February, the verdict of the first instance was partially upheld – Sebastian Kościelnik, the driver of the Seicento, was found guilty, but the court did not impose a penalty on him. The court also ruled that one of the drivers of the Government Protection Bureau contributed to the accident. The decision is final.
– Outside this room stands the famous seicento of Mr. Sebastian, (…). He recently picked up this seicento, without a lamp, destroyed, he will not be able to drive it. But perhaps he will show Poles this monument to the arrogance of power. The authority that has broken all world records when it comes to limousine purchases. Also when it comes to the number of accidents – said Tusk.
“You might consider this to be some malicious anecdote, but unfortunately, in one of these accidents, this young man was the victim,” he continued. The entire state machine, the entire PiS media machine, concentrated its efforts to destroy it. Only because he fell into power. Because he said to himself and to us, very loudly and clearly: “I will not be intimidated, I will not be bought, I will speak as it was, not as the authorities want it to be”. Mr. Sebastian, thank you very much for your endurance – he turned to Kościelnik.
