Sejm fails to lift immunity of former CBA head
June 11, 2014
Poland's lower house of Parliament Sejm failed to deprive the former head of the Central Anti-corruption CBA bureau Mariusz Kaminski of immunity in order to put him before court for illegal wiretapping, falsifying operating documents and misleading the court during the case against the former President Aleksander Kwasniewski and his wife back during the last government of conservative opposition party Law and Justice (PiS).
Only 216 of the required 231 MPs voted in favor of depriving Kaminski of immunity.
Interestingly nine of the votes against the motion as well as most of the votes abstaining came from the ruling coalition of PO and PSL.
