Poland's Interior Minister Bartlomiej Sienkiewicz
Poland's Interior Minister Bartlomiej Sienkiewicz presented his deposition to the state prosecutor's office in relation to the June tape scandal and an alleged infringement of the independence of central bank NBP.

Sienkiewicz denied being sent to his meeting with NBP head Marek Belka by PM Donald Tusk and denied that a clandestine agreement on potential monetary boos to the economy existed between the government and the central bank.

At issue is Poland's wire-tapping affair which in June dominated the political discourse. Illegal recordings, obtained and published by Wprost weekly magazine, include conversations between Poland's top government & non-government officials and businesspeople.

In the most controversial recording, Sienkiewicz and Belka discussed potential terms for the central bank help the government finance the budget if the economy didn't appear on track to pick up in time to keep the main opposition conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party from an election victory.

Following the scandal two no confidence motions were put forward in parliament by PiS calling on the government to step down. PM Tusk and his government survived both of them.
