The National Prosecutor’s Office reacted to the PO spot and media information about the “visa scandal” at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Investigators stated that the information provided contained “false” data.
The National Prosecutor’s Office issued a statement on Friday in which it stated that “the information provided by some politicians, including Donald Tusk, regarding irregularities in issuing visas contains false data and has no relevant connection with the findings of the investigation.”
Prosecutor’s Office: False information provided by Tusk
The prosecutor’s office claims that “in particular, the information provided by Donald Tusk that millions of immigrants were brought to Poland is false.” “In fact, the subject of the investigation, conducted by the prosecutor’s office together with the CBA, are irregularities in submitting applications for several hundred visas over a year and a half. Less than half of these applications were accepted,” it was reported.
The statement indicated that “irregularities concerned Polish diplomatic missions in Hong Kong, Taiwan, the United Arab Emirates, India, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, the Philippines and Qatar.” “Therefore, another false information provided by both politicians and “Gazeta Wyborcza” is the claim that those arriving came from African countries,” we read.
According to the prosecutor’s office, the information from “GW” indicating that “these proceedings were initiated by the foreign services of other countries and that the Polish services were forced to act” is also “untrue.” “From the very beginning, this investigation has been conducted by the CBA and the Polish Prosecutor’s Office and was started based on information from the Polish services. Procedural activities in the case are being carried out on an ongoing basis and evidence is being collected,” the statement said.
