Kamiński and Wąsik Summoned to Prosecutor's Office Over Illegal Sejm Voting

Prime Minister Donald Tusk addressed questions about President Andrzej Duda's doubts regarding Poland's participation in the German "iron dome" project during a recent press conference. Tusk criticized the president, stating that he should have focused on the collapse of the Polish army's preparedness during the previous government's time in office.

Tusk also discussed the use of the Pegasus surveillance system, asserting that the actions of the previous government were unlawful. He announced that the prosecutor's office would be taking action in response to the illegal use of Pegasus.

Additionally, Tusk revealed that former Interior Minister Mariusz Kamiński and Maciej Wąsik had been summoned to the prosecutor's office regarding their illegal participation in Sejm votes. According to Tusk, Kamiński had described their actions as "active involvement in the fight against the opposition."

Why this matters: The summons of high-profile former government officials Kamiński and Wąsik to the prosecutor's office signifies a serious investigation into alleged illegal activities during Sejm voting. This development has the potential to shed light on the previous government's actions and hold those responsible accountable.

The prime minister's strong criticism of President Duda and the previous government's handling of the Polish army and surveillance systems indicates ongoing tensions and a push for accountability. In the investigation into the illegal Sejm voting, it remains to be seen what consequences Kamiński, Wąsik, and potentially other officials may face for their alleged involvement in the fight against the opposition.
