The unrecognized Chamber of Extraordinary Control and Public Affairs of the Supreme Court decided to repeal the decision of the Speaker of the Sejm regarding the expiry of the mandate of MP Maciej Wąsik. – If the Chamber is not a court, and I believe so, then the ruling has no effect – said Piotr Prusinowski, president of the Supreme Court in charge of the Chamber of Labor and Social Insurance, in “Tak jest” on TVN24.
On Wednesday, the Chamber of Labor and Social Insurance of the Supreme Court received the information submitted by the Speaker of the Sejm Szymon Hołownia appeals Maciej Wąsik and Mariusz Kamiński from the Marshal’s decision to terminate their mandates. On Thursday morning, neo-judge Romuald Dalewski, appointed to consider the case, decided individually to transfer the files of Wąsik’s case to the Chamber of Extraordinary Control of the Supreme Court, to which Court of Justice of the European Union previously stated that it “is not an independent and impartial court.”
On the same day, an unrecognized chamber of the Supreme Court overturned the decision of the Speaker of the Sejm, Szymon Hołownia, regarding the expiry of the mandate of MP Maciej Wąsik.
Prusinowski: if the Chamber is not a court, and I believe it is, the ruling has no effect
This decision was commented on in “Tak jest” by Piotr Prusinowski, president of the Supreme Court and head of the Chamber of Labor and Social Insurance. – We must first ask whether the Chamber of Extraordinary Control and Public Affairs is a court. If it is a court, then the ruling is probably effective, but if it is not a court, and I think so, then the ruling has no effect, he said.
Commenting statement of the press spokesman of the Supreme Court, judge Aleksander StępkowskiPrusinowski stated that “Judge Stępkowski during the entire two days when this case was going on, even though he is a press spokesman, did not even bother to contact me or ask me what I did or why I did it and so on.”
– Everyone has already contacted me, actually all possible press editorial offices, except Mr. Stępkowski – he commented.
– My meeting with Mr. Stanisław Zakrętymski, director general of the office of Marshal Hołownia, took place in an official way with an open visor. That is, the director sent me an e-mail asking for a meeting. I replied that I agreed to such a meeting, and then he came to the Supreme Court, he said. – This meeting took place in the office of the President of the Supreme Court, where he stated that the Marshal, through him, wanted to hand over the files of cases concerning Mr. Wąsik and Mr. Kamiński. So I don’t see any secrecy in the meetings, he added.
