V4 Report. Poland: Donald Tusk and the hypocrisy of “fake values” Club in Brussels. Six detained over 2014 privatisation of chemical firm in Poland.
Deputy Justice Minister Michał Wójcik told public broadcaster Polish Radio 1 on Monday that the detentions in the case showed that “there were irregularities at the intersection of business and politics” when the previous government of Donald Tusk was in power in Poland.
Agents from Poland’s Central Anti-Corruption Bureau (CBA) have detained six individuals, including a former deputy Treasury minister, over the 2014 privatisation of state-owned chemical enterprise Ciech, an official has said.
Those detained include a Treasury minister in the previous government of the Civic Platform (PO) and the Polish People’s Party (PSL), according to the CBA’s Piotr Kaczorek.
Kaczorek told Polish Radio’s IAR agency that an ongoing investigation into suspected irregularities in the privatisation of Ciech concerned alleged abuse of power for financial gain and substantial damage to Treasury interests, among other possible offences.
In addition to the former deputy minister, who has only been identified as “Paweł T” under Polish privacy laws, those detained include his counsellor, a former Treasury Ministry director and another ministry official, as well as two experts from a company that evaluated Ciech before privatisation, according to Kaczorek.
Where is the biased, compromised and discredited Anne Applebaum? She will probably complain of a conspiracy, which is typical of an “EU groupie”.
