This statement almost escaped the cameras. The presidential adviser spoke about Kaczyński’s “wish” regarding the release of Kamiński and Wąsik. Is the president dissatisfied with Duda’s actions?
Much is said about Jarosław Kaczyński’s words, which were spoken when the PiS president was leaving the prison in Przytuły Stare, where Maciej Wąsik, convicted by a final judgment, is being held. As he was getting into the car, a question was asked about the president’s actions regarding the pardon. – I hope that the president will decide and finally free himself, because with the method he used, it may last another year – admitted the politician.
The president’s advisor was asked about these words on air, who pointed out that Andrzej Duda “effectively pardoned Mariusz Kamiński and Maciej Wąsik, members of the Sejm of the Republic of Poland in 2015.” Błażej Poboża that this movement was and still is questioned, which is why the head of state decided to initiate the pardon procedure.
– Currently, the keys to the release of political prisoners Mariusz Kamiński and Maciej Wąsik are held by the Minister of Justice, the Prosecutor General – argues Błażej Poboży. How did the presidential adviser respond to the above-mentioned words of Jarosław Kaczyński? – He has not heard such a public statement by the president – he emphasized.
Will Kamiński and Wąsik be released?
The government side makes it clear: Andrzej Duda does not want a quick pardon at all, because it is more convenient for the opposition to turn Mariusz Kamiński and Maciej Wąsik into political prisoners. The Minister of Justice and the Attorney General share the same opinion. – I am not at all convinced that the president really wants to complete the entire procedure – said Adam Bodnar recently.
The president asked him to release convicted PiS politicians from custody pending the proceedings. It turns out, however, that Bodnar has no intention of listening to Duda’s appeal. As “Super Express” unofficially determined, the Prosecutor General wants to hand over the case to the president as quickly as possible. Next week, 50 volumes of files and a position on this matter are to reach the head of state’s desk. The documents will not include a decision to order a break in serving the sentence.
