The Polish government may yet - and should - amend the imprecise wording of the bill introducing a prison sentence for alleging Polish responsibility or co-responsibility for Nazi crimes, daily Rzeczpospolita writes.
The bill that sparked controversy between Poland and Israel has recently been passed by the lower house and has been proceeded to the Senate.
The current wording of the bill introduces penalties for implying the compliance in Nazi crimes not only of the Polish state, but also of the Polish nation.
That last part is imprecise and will cause interpretation problems, constitutional expert Ryszard Piotrowski warns. Poland and Israel agreed to open a dialogue between team from both parties to try and achieve a compromise concerning the bill, the cabinet spokesperson Joanna Kopcinska said.
