I asked the national prosecutor, Dariusz Barski, to deal with the matter of Jan Pietrzak’s statement on Telewizja Republika and to initiate an investigation – said the Minister of Justice, Attorney General Adam Bodnar on Monday. The Center for Monitoring Racist and Xenophobic Behavior filed a report to the prosecutor’s office in connection with the satirist’s words. On Sunday, Pietrzak said, among other things, that “we have barracks for immigrants: in Auschwitz, Majdanek, Treblinka, Stutthof.”

Minister of Justice, Attorney General Adam Bodnar announced on Monday afternoon on the X platform (formerly Twitter) that he “asked the national prosecutor Dariusz Barski to deal with the matter of Jan Pietrzak’s statements on Telewizja Republika and to initiate an investigation.”

The Center for Monitoring Racist and Xenophobic Behavior notified the prosecutor’s office

Earlier, the Center for Monitoring Racist and Xenophobic Behavior announced on Monday on the X platform that it had submitted a “notification of a crime committed by Pietrzak and TV Republika”. “We notified the District Prosecutor’s Office in Warsaw about the propagation of Nazism and racist threats spread by Pietrzak,” it added.

When asked by PAP, the president of OMZRiK, Konrad Dulkowski, said that the notification was first submitted by e-mail, and most likely tomorrow it will be submitted by post. He added that it concerns “committing the crime of public incitement to hatred due to ethnic, racial or national origin.”

Dulkowski added that this was about Jan Pietrzak’s statement on Telewizja Republika, “in which he stated – a statement quite popular among racists – that barracks in the Auschwitz, Majdanek and other concentration camps are prepared to receive immigrants.”

– We simply consider it – on the one hand – promoting a totalitarian state system, and on the other hand – inciting hatred towards persons, etc., i.e. a crime under Art. 256 of the Penal Code – said Dulkowski.

OMZRiK also announced that it would submit a complaint to the National Broadcasting Council against Telewizja Republika. “We believe that this type of statements should absolutely not appear in the public space. There should be no place on any medium for inciting hatred,” he said.

Pietrzak’s words about migrants

On Sunday, on Telewizja Republika, satirist and publicist Jan Pietrzak said: “I have a cruel joke with these immigrants that they count on Poles being prepared because we have barracks. We have barracks for immigrants: in Auschwitz, in Majdanek, in Treblinka, in Stutthof. We have a lot of barracks built here by the Germans. And there we will be (…) these immigrants, pushed to us illegally by the Germans, because the people who escape to a better world are not illegal. The authorities who let them in are illegal, that is, the Germans are illegal. Their slogan welcoming the newcomers was illegal, outside the treaty, inconsistent with any laws. This is illegal German activity. We should be sensitive to it in the coming year, because it seems that they are starting to get on our heads a lot.”

The recording is not available on Telewizja Republika’s YouTube profile, fragments of it can be found on the X platform (formerly Twitter).
