The e-mail scandal. Prosecutor Ewa Wrzosek on “the situation on the verge of criminal offenses”
On Thursday, prosecutor Ewa Wrzosek spoke about the e-mails disclosed in “Fakty po Faktach”. – Assuming the authenticity of the content contained in these e-mails, it is simply an unlikely breach of constitutional principles, the principles of the rule of law, the rule of thirds and the balance of powers – she enumerated.
– Even ignoring this aspect, which is obviously very important, of breaking constitutional principles, I would like to point out that one of the e-mails described a situation that is already on the verge of criminal offenses – she added.
As she explained, “the author of the e-mail suggested that the Prime Minister had to sign a document issued with a retrospective date, in which he dismisses the head of the General Prosecutor’s Office, who has already taken the position of a Supreme Court judge.”
– This is a purely criminal and official crime. Confirming a falsehood in a document is punishable by imprisonment of up to five years. We are not only talking about breaking constitutional rules and potential liability before the Tribunal of State, but we are also talking about criminal liability provided for in the code. Assuming that the content of these e-mails is true, emphasized Wrzosek.
E-mails about the election of the head of the chamber of the Supreme Court. Judge Piotr Gąciarek comments
The second guest of the program, judge Piotr Gąciarek, recalled that “the current rulers, as a symbol of the alleged deterioration of the judiciary, gave an example from a few years ago, when the former president of the District Court in Gdańsk got caught up in a journalistic provocation and with the alleged official of the prime minister’s office, he was the journalist, he set the date of the meeting “. “It was embarrassing, this man took disciplinary responsibility,” he admitted.
“But here we are dealing with a square, if not a cube, pathology.” We have political fairs conducted by unauthorized persons, because the prime minister is not responsible for determining who will run the chamber in the Supreme Court. He is not even more so than his minister. And this is absolutely not what the president of the Constitutional Tribunal should deal with, stressed the judge.
He added that now “a question arises as to whether or not judgments are issued in this way by politically appointed judges”.
