The announcement that the president would pardon Mariusz Kamiński and Maciej Wąsik again was met with numerous comments by lawyers and politicians.
Representatives of the Chancellery of the President have repeatedly assured that Andrzej Duda will not pardon Maciej Wąsik and Mariusz Kamiński again. The main argument was that the president considers the first pardon from 2015 binding. However, it turns out that the head of state changed his mind about the repeated pardon, emphasizing that the first pardon is still in force.
However, on Sunday, “Super Express” published a fragment of an interview with the president, in which Andrzej Duda made a declaration regarding the pardon of Mariusz Kamiński and Maciej Wąsik.
Mariusz Kamiński and Maciej Wąsik pardoned again?
The president’s decision announced in “SE” sparked many comments.
“The situation is complex on many levels. But PAD knows that it can and must stop it and pardon it. He can do this at any time. Putting the blame on Adam Bodnar is a cynical political game. Of the worst kind, because he used his colleagues and their families,” wrote lawyer Krzysztof Izdebski.
“Does the President of the Republic of Poland support awards for CBA agents offered by the management of this institution? Because this is what the announcement of pardon for Kamiński and Wąsik announced today would indicate,” said attorney Roman Giertych, ironically. Earlier, Giertych announced that the Settlement Team, which he heads, will submit a notification to the prosecutor’s office regarding Agent Tomek’s revelations. Kaczmarek revealed that when he was an agent, the CBA management may have misappropriated public funds
“President Jarosław Kaczyński expects President Andrzej Duda to pardon Wąsik and Kamiński. The president responds positively to this. Mastalerek denies this. Well, that’s what happened” – this is how Bogdan Zdrojewski (KO) referred to the confusion in the messages issued from the Presidential Palace.
KO MP Arkadiusz Myrcha also drew attention to the discrepancy in the positions of president Marcin Mastalerek.
“I don’t know if I should have sympathy for President Duda’s associates who said in the media that it was impossible. That the law doesn’t allow it. But on a human level, I feel sorry for them. “To have a boss who leaves his employees in harm’s way,” he wrote on X.
