Verdicts in Kamiński and Wąsik bear the hallmarks of judicial crimes

Judge of the Polish Constitutional Tribunal:

Verdicts in Kamiński and Wąsik cases

bear the hallmarks of judicial crimes


 “The judgment of the District Court in Warsaw of December 2023 legally convicting former Polish security forces chiefs Mariusz Kamiński and Maciej Wąsik, and the earlier judgment of the Supreme Court from June last year overturning the discontinuation of the case of the former heads of the Central Bureau of Anticorruption may bear the hallmarks of a judicial crime,” said Constitutional Tribunal judge Bogdan Święczkowski, justifying today’s ruling on the amendment to the provisions on the NCBR law.

Today, the Polish Constitutional Tribunal ruled on the amendment to the provisions of NCBR law of January 26, 2024. The request for a constitutional review was submitted by the President of Poland due to the fact that the amendment was adopted by the Sejm while the two MPs Mariusz Kamiński and Maciej Wąsik were prevented from participating in the work and voting on this amendment. The Constitutional Tribunal ruled that barring Kaminski and Wasik from serving as Polish MPs was unconstitutional.

Justifying the ruling, Judge Bogdan Święczkowski stated that the judgments regarding MPs Kamiński and Wąsik “were issued in flagrant violation of the law and in violation of the presidential prerogative of the law of pardon, and thus were in obvious contradiction to the constitutional order of the state.”

“The motives behind issuing the commented judgments were, in the opinion of the Constitutional Tribunal, of a strictly political nature, and their consequence was the unlawful deprivation of liberty of members of the Sejm of the Republic of Poland”

– he said.

“The actions taken against Kamiński and Wąsik aimed at actually preventing them from performing their parliamentary mandates evoke associations with inglorious precedents in the history of Polish parliamentarism – for example, the so-called “Brest elections”.

– added.
