Security chief's resigns as PM plans to reform special services
January 7, 2013
Prime Minister Donald Tusk accepted the resignation of the chief of Poland's Internal Security Agency (ABW), General Krzysztof Bondaryk last Thursday saying that he had a different vision of its work.
Last year, the Polish PM announced plans to remodel the special services. He spoke of depriving ABW of most of its investigative powers and transforming it into a terrorism-combating and data-processing unit. Tusk said that reforms were needed so that ABW “does not compete with other police services.”
Bondaryk disagreed with the plans and wanted ABW to remain in its present form.
Tusk said the project with the planned changes in ABW should be ready at the turn of March and April.
