Anti-defamation bill to be signed?
February 7, 2018   
Article's tools:

President Andrzej Duda will most likely sign the anti-defamation bill which triggered Poland's current diplomatic crisis with Israel, but is reportedly mulling sending it to the Constitutional Tribunal to delay the process, unspecified sources tell daily Rzeczpospolita.
Meanwhile ruling party Law and Justice (PiS) leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski is pressing Duda to sign the legislation as quickly as possible.
Polish-Israeli negotiations on the anti-defamation law would make sense only before president signs the bill into law, Israeli ambassador Anna Azari said in an interview for Dziennik Gazeta Prawna.
The Polish government is willing to send its working group for legal and historical dialogue with Israel to Tel-Aviv so that Polish experts could talk there to their Israeli counterparts in an attempt to bridge the diplomatic gap caused by Poland's planned anti-defamation law, foreign minister Jacek Czaputowicz told a conference.
Poland wants its relations with Israel to be "as good as possible", government spokesperson Joanna Kopcinska told the media, stressing the cabinet's stance on the recent crisis.
