Kołakowski subleased premises from him for 50 złoty per month for a parliamentary office. Lisowski also dealt with Kołakowski's parliamentary affairs. The former deputy minister assured the committee that he did not receive any benefits for helping to obtain visas.

The commission of inquiry plans to summon nine more people. The report on the work is to be presented in September.

The Commission is investigating abuses, neglect and omissions in the legalization of the stay of foreigners in Poland in the period from 12 November 2019 to 20 November 2023.
