According to the National Prosecutor's Office, the charges concern 11 crimes. – The application will be assessed as quickly as possible – said Katarzyna Karpa-Świderek, spokeswoman for the Speaker of the Sejm. – This is a political stunt and revenge by Tusk and Giertych, who are personally interested in discrediting the minister Zbigniew Ziobro and the destruction of the environment of Sovereign Poland and the entire United Right – commented Romanowski.
