Attorney Jacek Dubois confirmed in “Fakty po Faktach” on TVN24 that he represents one of the suspects in the Justice Fund case – Tomasz M. He said that this person was the first to start cooperating with investigators, using the institution of a small crown witness. According to the lawyer, “in a few days there will be a long queue” of people who want to testify in this case.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, at the request of prosecutors from the Justice Fund investigative team, searches were carried out in various places throughout the country. Their purpose is to secure evidence, including documentation regarding the fund. The services appeared, among others, at the house of former Minister of Justice Zbigniew Ziobro. The spokesman for the National Prosecutor's Office, prosecutor Przemysław Nowak, announced that five people were charged on Tuesday and Wednesday, and two more were previously charged. On Thursday, the court applied arrest of three people, including Father Michał O., president of the Profeto Foundation.

The case was commented on in “Fakty po Faktach” on TVN24 by attorney Jacek Dubois, vice-chairman of the State Tribunal and at the same time defense attorney, together with Roman Giertych, of one of the suspects in this case.

Dubois was asked who exactly he represented in the Justice Fund case.

– We are talking about Tomasz M., the person who was indicated by Onet first and who initiated the arrests and then provisional arrest in this case – he said. Previously, Onet reported that M. was the director of the Justice Fund Department at the Ministry of Justice.

Dubois: I suspect that in a few days there will be a queue of people willing to testify

– I think this is the witness who was the first to start cooperating, using the institution of a small crown witness, i.e. an institution where, in exchange for providing information about certain criminal activities of oneself and one's partners, one can count on extraordinary leniency of punishment. – he continued.

He added that “this is a kind of principle when using this institution of a small crown witness, because it is supposed to create a gap, a crack in a certain criminal conspiracy.”

– And the moment the first witness appears, when people who committed crimes together start to realize that it is getting more and more dangerous and this pyramid of collusion is falling apart, more and more of them come forward and I suspect that in a few days it will be a standing queue, he continued.

He added, however, that the institution of the small crown witness is based on the fact that “the first ones who decide to use it benefit from it.”
