Today, on behalf of Krzysztof Brejza, I won the first lawsuit against TVP for violating his personal rights. This is a case of lies published during the 2019 election campaign, during surveillance with the Pegasus cyber weapon – attorney Dorota Brejza, privately the wife of a Civic Coalition politician, said on social media. “This is just the beginning of our consistent fight for the truth,” she added.
“I am happy to inform you that today, on behalf of Krzysztof Brejza, I won the first trial against TVP for violating his personal rights. This is a case about lies published during the 2019 election campaign, during the surveillance of Krzysztof Brejza with the Pegasus cyberweapon. The case was pending before Court of Appeal in Bydgoszcz, IC 1086/21 and today it was resolved illegally. TVP will have to apologize to Krzysztof Brejza and will incur court costs,” wrote Dorota Brejza on the X platform (formerly Twitter).
She announced that she would soon publish the text of the ruling. “This is just the beginning of our consistent fight for the truth,” she added.
Brejza under surveillance with Pegasus
A group of researchers from Citizen Lab, operating at the University of Toronto, showed in their expert opinion that in Poland those under surveillance with the Pegasus software included attorney Roman Giertych, prosecutor Ewa Wrzosek and senator of the Civic Coalition Krzysztof Brejza. She also independently confirmed the fact that Brejza was under surveillance Amnesty International. According to Citizen Lab, Senator Krzysztof Brejza was under surveillance 33 times before the 2019 parliamentary elections, when he was the head of the KO election staff. There are no proceedings pending against the politician.
As follows from findings of reporters of “Superwizjer” TVN, the consent of the Warsaw court for the Central Anticorruption Bureau to operationally control Brejza confirms Citizen Lab’s findings that the politician’s phone was infected. Journalists learned the details of the capital court’s decision while working on a report on the Pegasus case.
– When issuing this consent, the court indicated the provision created for the CBA for surveillance with such software – said prosecutors who have experience in supervision over the use of operational control. The court replied that the Bureau did not inform us what method it would use for surveillance and that no service was obliged to inform about it.
