Less than two months have passed since Donald Tusk formed the new Polish “pro-European” government, consisting of three coalitions of 14 parties, and the new executive is already showing its authoritarian face. It is trying to destroy everything that the previous PiS (Law and Justice) government built. But the European Union is not reacting and even the mainstream media does not seem to be interested in the lawlessness and constitutional violations in Poland.
No wonder: the EU power centers have always been allied with the Polish liberal and left-wing forces in an anti-PiS and anti-nationalist manner. In Germany there are press representatives who openly suggest that Tusk should become an autocrat in order to “reform” the state and use “police methods”. And Tusk does things like an autocrat: he sends the police into the headquarters of public television and radio and the National Information Agency (PAP); his government acts in accordance with decisions (i.e. opinions, not state laws) of the lower house of the Polish Parliament (Sejm) that contradict existing laws and violate the constitution; The Minister of Justice replaces the prosecutors and wants to “verify” the judges appointed during the presidency of Andrzej Duda, even if they were appointed according to the rules and took the oath before the president.
But another very serious event occurred that shows the almost dictatorial face of the current government: the arrest of the two Sejm deputies and former ministers, Mariusz Kamiński and Maciej Wąsik, which took place in the Presidential Palace by the police, which was the residence of the President injured head of state during his absence. The two ministers became the first political prisoners of the Tusk era. La Nuova Compass spoke about this with Beata Kempa, former head of the chancellery of Prime Ministers Szydlo and Morawiecki and currently a member of the European Parliament (Sovereign Poland Party).
Mr Kempa, two members of the lower house of parliament and former ministers, Mariusz Kamiński and Maciej Wąsik, have been arrested in Poland. For the first time in 35 years, i.e. for the first time since the fall of communist totalitarianism, we have political prisoners in Poland. Why doesn't everyone in the world realize the gravity of this fact being ignored or misinterpreted?
The situation we are facing today shows that it is not just a crime of justice, but above all the spread of anarchy, a very dangerous and multidimensional phenomenon. It is the first time in the history of Poland that democratically elected parliamentarians, who were pardoned by the President of the Republic, were treated in such a brutal and illegal manner. The President rightly pointed out that Kamiński and Wąsik should never have been charged in this case. These are also the people who fought against massive corruption in Poland, most often corruption in the economic sector. It is worth highlighting that they were convicted by Judge Wojciech Łączewski, who in his email correspondence encouraged them to carry out an anti-government campaign (against PiS) and then repeatedly committed the crime of perjury.
Not everyone knows that Kamiński and Wąsik headed the Central Anti-Corruption Bureau, which in the past attacked various mafias and criminal organizations (VAT, fuel, gambling, land mafia) that flourished during the period of the first Tusk government, and that they also touched his entourage…
By illegally arresting these Law and Justice MPs, the new government is also sending a clear signal to these criminal circles that they can now do whatever they want because those who opposed them have been punished. This is a measure that significantly weakens the state from an economic point of view, also because the resulting legal chaos will deter investments in Poland. If the President of the Sejm can personally elect the members of the Chamber of the Supreme Court in which the appeals of MPs Kamiński and Wąsik against the decision to terminate their parliamentary mandate will be heard, we are faced with anarchy. With a euphemism we can say that the rule of law has been broken: this is political adventurism, a political brawl.
Not everyone is aware of the seriousness of the arrest of the parliamentarians: can you remember the circumstances?
Police officers entered the headquarters of the President of the Republic and arrested his guests, the parliamentarians. What could one call this event if not a crisis of the Polish state? And it was a conscious and deliberate action by the government.
But if the police can enter the president's palace in this way, isn't there also a problem for his security?
This is an important issue because Poland is currently a frontline country and beyond our border there is a brutal war, even a hybrid one, taking into account the Polish-Belarusian border. The current situation in Poland is certainly being exploited in some way by the regimes that threaten us. Tusk must be aware that he is completely destabilizing the country and that there is a threat to the security of the state and its citizens. Unfortunately, everything that is happening in Poland today is also controlled by the old secret services, to which Tusk promised to restore the privileges taken away from them by the previous government. We act according to the old schemes of the communist secret services.
That this was a coordinated action against the president is shown by the fact that the president's motorcade was blocked by a bus…
When President Duda, who had met the Belarusian opponents in the Belvedere Palace, learned about the police invasion of the Presidential Palace, he actually wanted to immediately return to his residence, but the Belvedere exit was (coincidentally) blocked by public transport buses, with a TVN -TV journalists hostile to the previous government). So it was the implementation of the rather simple but bold secret service plan. There are people who will stop at nothing to harm the incumbent president.
Given the attacks on President Duda, we must remember that one of Poland's presidents has already been attacked and “eliminated”: President Lech Kaczyński, who died in an alleged plane crash.
Watching Tusk's moves toward President Duda brings to mind the events of April 10, 2010, when the president was assassinated in a plane crash. We must not downplay this fact! I still remember that on the day of the Smolensk tragedy, Tusk hugged Putin at the scene of the disaster, almost on President Kaczyński's body, and left the investigation of the tragedy to the Russians. As a Pole and MEP, I cannot imagine that such a situation could happen to the current President of Poland. But the world that claims to be democratic should monitor everything that happens in Poland.
