Former Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki admitted that Judge Tomasz Szmydt “was probably an agent who had been operating in the state structures for a long time.” According to the coordinator of the special services, Tomasz Siemoniak, Szmydt was in Belarus already in June 2023 and – as Morawiecki, the then prime minister, said – “most likely the services did not know about it” – Because if they were normal services operating effectively, they would react – he added.

Tomasz Szmydt, a judge of the Provincial Administrative Court, involved in the hate scandal, went to Belarus and asked the local authorities for asylum. The Internal Security Agency initiated inspection activities in order to verify the scope of classified information to which Szmydt had access.

The Disciplinary Court at the Supreme Administrative Court revoked Szmydt's immunity and allowed his detention and provisional arrest. Szmydt is accused of espionage.

According to the coordinator of the special services, Tomasz Siemoniak, Judge Szmydt left for Belarus in June 2023, and the services “did not take any steps”.

Mateusz Morawiecki from PiS, who was then prime minister, was asked about this information on Thursday.

– Only recently I learned that Mr. Szmydt left for Belarus in 2023. It was probably an agent who had been operating in the state structures for a long time, he said.

When asked whether the services he then indirectly supervised knew about Szmydt's departure, he replied: – Most likely they did not know, because if they were normal services operating effectively, they would have reacted. I only deduce and interpret it from what I know from the media.

– However, the basic question is why Tusk and Siemoniak did not react to this in recent months – added Morawiecki.
