National Broadcasting Council in mid-January this year. decided not to punish Radio Szczecin and TVP Info for disclosing data allowing the identification of the pedophile’s victims. This is the case of the son of Magdalena Filiks, an MP from the Civic Coalition.

We asked the National Broadcasting Council when the proceedings in the case of Radio Szczecin and TVP Info were completed and whether any violations on the part of the broadcasters were found during the proceedings. By the time the article was published, we had not received a response.

The above matter is also to be thoroughly investigated by the President of the Personal Data Protection Office, Mirosław Wróblewski. This is according to the office’s announcement on Monday.

Conduct of the chairman of the National Broadcasting Council

Magdalena Filiks’s son died on February 17, 2023. He committed suicide. It is impossible to make a clear judgment as to the reasons for which the 15-year-old took his own life; the investigation into his death is being conducted by the prosecutor’s office. However, there were opinions – including from the then head of the state commission on pedophilia, Błażej Kmieciak – that the government media at the turn of 2022/2023 led to the identification of the MP’s son as the victim of a convicted pedophile.


The teenager was a victim of pedophile Krzysztof F. (in 2018, he ran from the PO list for the West Pomeranian Voivodeship Assembly), who worked as the plenipotentiary of the West Pomeranian Voivodeship Marshal for addictions. Krzysztof F. was convicted in 2021 and sent to prison.

On December 29, 2022, in the morning, Radio Szczecin and TVP Info reported that a former employee of the Marshal’s Office of the West Pomeranian Voivodeship, Krzysztof F., was detained in September 2020 on charges of molesting a 13-year-old boy and giving him and a 16-year-old girl narcotic substances.

So the case was not new. The media did not report on this case earlier because the trial was held in public for the benefit of the injured children. However, when reporting on the trial in December 2022, the editorial offices of Radio Szczecin and TVP Info announced who the harmed children were. Although they did not mention them by name and surname, they described them in such a way that it was easy to connect Krzysztof F. with Magdalena Filiks and her children. She is a KO MP from Szczecin. A narrative emerged that Filiks did not publicize F.’s arrest, trial and conviction so as not to harm her party.

This message, in which the media controlled by the ruling party or supporting it took part, looked coordinated – as Piotr Pacewicz said in OKO.press, “this may indicate orchestrated propaganda activities.” Because other public and right-wing media, right-wing journalists, internet trolls, and Law and Justice politicians immediately got involved.

For two months, we observed in the media and on social media profiles favorable to the then government a campaign of accusations against PO, the main character of which was Filiks. Any voices of opposition and protests against such behavior – i.e. repeated harm to children and public lynching of their family – were met with even more aggressive attacks and accusations of limiting freedom of speech.

Three weeks before the death of his son Filiks, the chairman of the National Broadcasting Council, Maciej Świrski, initiated proceedings to punish Radio Szczecin and TVP Info in connection with “broadcasting content enabling the identification of the victims of a pedophile, which grossly threatened the well-being of minor victims of violence.”
