There is no pressure from the Polish government on the Constitutional Tribunal, the Supreme Court, or the common courts in terms of judgments, argued the government spokesman at the conference. Piotr Mueller was asked about another thread of the revealed correspondence from Michał Dworczyk’s mailbox. The head of the Chancellery of the Prime Minister was to discuss matters in the Tribunal with the President of the Constitutional Tribunal. The government spokesman asked whether he would deny contacts between the head of the prime minister’s office and the president of the Constitutional Tribunal regarding the postponement of hearings and whether the case should be dealt with by the prosecutor’s office.
The correspondence published on the Internet shows that head of the Chancellery of the Prime Minister Michał Dworczyk was to consult the President of the Constitutional Tribunal, Julia Przyłębska, on the actions of the Tribunal.
The members of the Civic Coalition announced that they would submit a notification to the prosecutor’s office regarding the possibility of exceeding the powers (article 231 of the Criminal Code on the abuse of powers by a public official) by Przyłębska and Dworczyk. A similar report was made by Adam Szłapka z Nowoczesnej.
Mateusz, today (shortly after your conversation) I visited Mrs. Julia P. I discussed 3 topics with the President: 1. Year 1953 – deferred for now (Kieres, 250 million – 1.5 billion) 2. Care allowance for the time being deferred (Muszyński ) until February 19 (about 5 billion) 3. The easement of land regarding transmission deferred for now (Muszyński) (several billion). Tomek Fill is said to have dealt with the number 2 already, so I will enter into cooperation with him. Michael
Mueller: I have no doubts about this case
The government spokesman Piotr Mueller was asked about this issue on Wednesday.
– All official positions of the government on matters that are held before the Constitutional Tribunal are of a written nature and they are available on the website of the Constitutional Tribunal. There were no other activities in this regard. No actions were taken other than official letters, which are expressed in the course of the proceedings and probably by the prosecutor general and the Council of Ministers. Of course, not in all cases these positions are expressed, but in those in which they were expressed, they are available on the pages of the Constitutional Tribunal – he replied.
When asked whether he therefore denied that the head of the prime minister’s office had contacted the president of the Constitutional Tribunal regarding the postponement of hearings, Mueller replied: Constitutional Court, neither the Supreme Court, nor the common courts in the field of sentencing. I can emphasize this and repeat it again.
The government spokesman was asked further whether, in his opinion, the case should be investigated by the prosecutor’s office. – I have no doubts about this matter, there is nothing to explain here, our actions are clear and lucid. Again, there is no and there has been no action taken to influence the sentencing in any court, Mueller said.
