PiS officials, blinded by hatred, will still regret that they decided to appoint a committee on Russian influence. An unconstitutional body that incites protests around the world has no reason to exist in a democratic society, Senate Marshal Tomasz Grodzki (KO) stressed on Wednesday.
The Sejm on April 14 this year approved the law establishing the State Commission for the Study of Russian Influences on the Internal Security of the Republic of Poland in the Years 2007-2022. They started setting it up in December last year. PiS Delegates. They pointed out that the commission will operate on principles similar to those of the verification commission for the re-privatization of Warsaw. May 11 this year The Senate passed a resolution to reject the bill on the establishment of this committee. Last Friday, the Sejm voted against the Senate resolution. The law was signed by President Andrzej Duda on Monday. That is in the Journal of Laws on Tuesday. The law took effect on Wednesday.
As long as power in the Senate is in the hands of the Democratic majority, no unconstitutional bill will be passed here, there is no doubt about it
– emphasized Grodzki at a press conference in the Senate. He added that “the creation of cap or inquisition courts is neo-Bolshevik and takes us back to the level not only of Belarus, but probably also of North Korea.”
The Marshal recalled that the Senate had unequivocally rejected the law on the Committee on Russian Influence.
A month ago, we were with the Senate delegation in the US Senate and US State Department, two days after the passage of this bill by the Sejm. To say that our American partners … were beyond amazed that a governing body could strip someone’s right to participate in public life is an understatement. They were shocked by it
As he added, he treats the passing of this law as “a strong vote of no confidence by the leadership of the ruling party in the services created to protect us from Russian influence – intelligence and counterintelligence.”
Apparently PiS doesn’t trust those services where many agents are committed to the homeland
– assessed the Marshal.
Allegations against the president
The head of the Senate’s KO club, Senator Marcin Bosacki, pointed out that signals in Washington and the EU that “not only is this law incompatible with the Polish Constitution, but also a major concern to our key allies over the past month. ”
Since the Sejm approved this Bolshevik law for the first time, the senate rejected it and finally the president, unfortunately against the constitution, signed this law two days ago
noted the senator.
Bosacki stressed that the United States “extremely rarely refers to the internal situation in countries that are its allies.”
This time they did. Moreover, it was not an answer to a question at the conference, but a special statement from a State Department spokesperson. This is a very serious statement and a very serious warning to the PiS authorities and President Andrzej Duda that the United States is concerned about the fate of Polish democracy
Senator KO said. State Department spokesman Matthew Miller said Monday that the US government is concerned about the Russian Influence Investigation Commission Act, which could be used to disrupt free and fair elections in Poland.
According to Bosacki, “Law and justice, just to eliminate opponents in the elections, endangers the purpose of this Bolshevik law, the main Polish alliances and the security of Poland.”
According to Senate Deputy Speaker Gabriela Morawska-Stanecka, the law establishing the Committee on Russian Influence violates 17 articles of our constitution.
First, this law violates the principle of separation of powers. Judicial power in Poland is exercised by the courts, it also violates the principle of the citizen’s right to have his case decided by an independent court, because this commission will not be a court
– said Morawska-Stanecka.
Why are we talking about courts? Because this commission will impose a criminal sanction. Because nothing else deprives a citizen of the right to hold positions related to public finances, or lose the right to own a gun, or deprive a citizen of the right to obtain a gun, a gun license, or be sentenced to some degree of disgrace because it is stated in the Court Monitor that someone is an agent of influence i.e. depriving a person of his honor
– said the Deputy Speaker of the Senate.
According to her, “such sanctions can only be imposed by the courts”.
Only in judicial proceedings, which should be in two instances with the right of defense and with all its consequences, and the assurances we have heard that, of course, there will be an appeal to the administrative court, is this a lie
– noted Morawska-Stanecka.
