Opole. “By his attitude he restores our faith in the rule of law”

The protest was also held in Opole. About 35 people were present at the local Daszyński Square.

One of the participants, Małgorzata Besz-Janicka from KOD Opole, said about judge Igor Tuleya that “he is a symbol of such an adamant, brave judge who, with his attitude, restores our faith in the rule of law, which we do not currently have”. – Indeed, he has come through a very hard way. Not only was he suspended and removed from the trial. Also Paweł Juszczyszyn, who has actually been deprived of the possibility of adjudicating for 21 months. He is an extremely brave judge, relentless in efforts – said the activist.
