Deputy Minister of Justice Sebastian Kaleta blocked the conclusion of the European Council on the Charter of Fundamental Rights. – He did it on my orders. This conclusion pushes through the privileges and special rights of the LGBT community, on the other hand, it does not take into account Poland’s demands, said Justice Minister Zbigniew Ziobro.

– Today, Minister Sebastian Kaleta in Brussels, at my request, vetoed the conclusions of the European Council regarding the Charter of Fundamental Rights, to the extent that it did not take into account the expectations of the Polish side – Ziobro informed at a press conference.

The minister argued that this conclusion “on the one hand pushes through the privileges and special rights of people’s communities LGBTOn the other hand, it does not take into account Poland’s demands, which were aimed at securing the rights of believers, including Christians, in the European Union and exposing the acts of hatred and aggression that are increasingly directed against these communities in the European Union.

According to Ziobro, the document proposed by the Swedish presidency is one-sided and rejects postulates that would protect other groups at risk of aggression.

They blocked a symbolic act

TVN24 Brussels correspondent Maciej Sokołowski explained that the record blocked by Kaleta has only a symbolic meaning and is adopted by the Council of the European Union every year during meetings in June, i.e. Pride Month.

In the blocked conclusions there are no regulations or legal provisions that would be blocked by Poland. After Kaleta’s objection, the document will not be adopted as the position of the entire Council of the European Union, but as the “position of the presidency”.

Kaleta against anti-violence laws

Sokołowski pointed out that the EU Council on Friday also adopted a position on the provisions on combating violence against women and domestic violence. In this case, it was already about specific legal solutions.

This happened despite the opposition of Poland and the position of Kaleta, who criticized these provisions. Unanimity was not required for the vote. The European Parliament will now deal with these regulations.
