Hołownia's collaborator does not want to hand over the documents to the prosecutor's office

According to Wirtualna Polska, investigators asked the Chancellery of the Sejm for the original documents regarding MP Mejza, including the above-mentioned handwritten correction. The prosecutor's office wants to check whether the letter was not backdated and compare it with documents from previous years. Ewa Antonowicz, spokesman for the District Prosecutor's Office in Zielona Góra, emphasizes that obtaining these documents in the original is necessary.

However, as journalists learned from the prosecutor's office, the Chancellery of the Sejm refused to release the original documents, issuing certified copies. In the case, the prosecutor's office exchanged letters with Stanisław Zazdrowiemski, general director in charge of the office of the Speaker of the Sejm, Szymon Hołownia. The office's representative filed a complaint at the prosecutor's request. As spokeswoman Antonowicz told Wirtualna Polska, the Sejm is afraid that the original documents may be lost or damaged. The complaint will be considered by the District Court in Zielona Góra.

In an interview with Wirtualna Polska, Zazdrowiemski stated that the prosecutor's decision did not provide sufficient arguments for the release of the original documents. He allegedly emphasized several times that the prosecutor did not write why he needed Mejza's statements. At the same time, he assures that such action was in accordance with the instructions of Sejm lawyers, and if the court dismisses the complaint of the Sejm Chancellery, the original documents will be released. He also adds that the case has no political overtones.

However, the prosecutor's office assures that other aspects of the case are still being investigated and, despite the dispute with the Chancellery of the Sejm, “intensive procedural activities are ongoing.”
