“Each participant of the meeting between the CBA management and the heads of delegations will answer. This lawlessness is an obvious area of possible investigative activities of the Sejm!” – KO MP Michał Szczerba commented on questions asked by the former head of the CBA, Paweł Wojtunik, to the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Administration, Mariusz Kamiński. Wojtunik in “Fakty po Faktach” publicly asked the minister coordinator of secret services whether it was true that before the elections, decisions were made to apply operational control to representatives of opposition groups. “We will hold PiS to account,” announced PSL spokesman Miłosz Motyka.
Former head of the Central Anticorruption Bureau, Paweł Wojtunik, spoke in Saturday’s edition of “Fakty po Faktach” about the state of the Polish secret services. In this context, he publicly addressed four questions to Mariusz Błaszczakthe head of the Ministry of Interior and Administration, the minister coordinating special services – in one of them he asked if it was true that “during the briefing in Lucień (a village in the Masovian Voivodeship, where the CBA center is located – ed.) two days before the elections, decisions, instructions were made, recommendations were made in the context of the parliamentary elections massively use operational control against representatives of opposition groups with special emphasis on one of the groups forming the pre-election coalition. It is about the Third Way.
Wojtunik asked who took part in such a possible meeting, and also whether the Internal Security Agency, the Military Counterintelligence Service, the police or other services carried out wiretapping. He also asked whether information obtained as part of any such operational control was passed on to politicians.
Ex-boss CBA he assessed that “if the answer to any of these questions is positive, we can talk about the risk of a conspiracy and an attack by representatives of the executive power, using the secret services, on legally, democratically elected representatives of the legislative power.”
Operational control of opposition politicians? Szczerba: I have received information
Opposition politicians commented on the questions formulated by the former head of the CBA on social media. Michał Szerba, an MP from the Civic Coalition, informed on the X platform (formerly Twitter) that he also “received information about the arrangements at the CBA center in Lucień.”
“The plan to apply a 5-day operational control to MPs-elect only confirms what a pathology the PiS state is. Political principals and contractors – we have one message for you: you will all be in jail!” – wrote the politician.

“They thought they would be fishing among five, not eighteen. They wanted to have 231. Regardless of whether they implemented the plan or not, they planned it. Each participant of the meeting between the CBA management and the heads of delegations will answer. This lawlessness is an obvious area of possible actions. Sejm investigators! – added Szczerba in the next entry.
Another KO politician, MEP Bartosz Arłukowicz, also commented on the questions formulated by Wojtunik on the knows,” said the politician.
Third Way: “we will hold PiS to account”, “burning files will not save you”
According to Paweł Wojtunik, operational control was to be placed especially on Third Way politicians. This coalition consists of two groups: Szymon Hołownia’s Poland 2050 and Polish People’s Party.
PSL spokesman Miłosz Motyka emphasized that “if the reports about wiretapping of opposition politicians, including Third Way, are confirmed, no shredder will help those responsible.” “We will hold PiS to account,” he added.
Michał Kobosko, first vice-president of Poland 2050, wrote that “the questions asked by Wojtunik are shocking.” “There are many indications that the CBA political police took illegal actions against us, Third Way politicians, 5 minutes before the elections. Shredders or burning files will not save you,” he said.
Wrzosek: the prosecutor’s office should immediately initiate proceedings
The suggestions of the former head of the CBA were also commented on social media by prosecutor Ewa Wrzosek from the Lex Super Omnia Prosecutors’ Association, who was in conflict with the Minister of Justice Zbigniew Ziobro critic of the ruling party.
“This information is so outrageous that the National Prosecutor’s Office should immediately and ex officio initiate at least an investigation into this case,” Wrzosek wrote on the X platform.
