Donald Tusk on transferring property to his wife
On Saturday, Tusk commented on the website’s reports. – A few months ago, Wirtualna Polska, before my return to Polish politics, asked me about the reasons for assigning the property to my wife – Gosia. We made this decision – a few years ago. The family and my wife, Gosia, felt the threat of the constant hunt and organized hunting for me for political reasons by PiS and the PiS government – he said in the introduction to the recording published on Twitter.
He added that “he absolutely understood this sense of danger.” He stressed that “the only intention of this decision was the safety of my family, not hiding anything.”
– The data on our property, our real estate has not changed for 20 years. They have been published many times – in my property declarations and in all possible media in Poland. Nothing has changed here. Wirtualna Polska once again provided this information. There was one minor mistake – our apartment is 66 square meters, not 86 – Tusk noted.

– I have earned money in a very transparent manner in my life. All the money we’ve earned is my salaries and my book fees. I did not speculate on land. I did not buy a plot of land at a discounted price from the bishop. I did not maneuver in any credit weird activities. It remains for me to wish the journalists full independence and insight in their journalistic investigations – concluded Tusk.
