Former deputy minister of justice Michał Woś testified before the parliamentary investigative commission into the Pegasus case. Internal Security Agency agents revealed the original supervision file of preparatory proceedings files in Zbigniew Ziobro's house. In turn, the National Prosecutor's Office announces that it will submit a request for arrest to the president of the Profeto Foundation. Here are six things to know on March 28.

1. Woś appeared before the Pegasus commission

In the year of the most frequent use of Pegasus, i.e. in 2021, there were approximately 200 consents imposed for the surveillance of 100 people, said former Deputy Minister of Justice Michał Woś on Wednesday, testifying before the Sejm investigative committee on Pegasus matters. He added that the use of the software “12 times involved the prosecution of homicides.”

Wednesday's committee meeting ended without any of the PiS MPs. Two of them were excluded, and the other two left the meeting themselves.

2. Documents in Ziobro's house

At Zbigniew Ziobro's house, we revealed the original file of the surveillance files of the preparatory proceedings, we will analyze how it got there and whether it should be there – said Przemysław Nowak, spokesman for the National Prosecutor's Office. He added that it was about the death of Ziobro's father.

The case was discontinued twice by the prosecutor's office, independent of Ziobro. When PiS took power, both the prosecutor's office, already supervised by Ziobro, and the Ministry of Justice, headed by him, became involved.
