The Ministry of justice of Poland said that we need to put in prison anyone who publicly say just two words: “Polish concentration camp”. A few years ago, such an expression made Barack Obama, called by mistake Auschwitz – and he had written to apologize. Why is Warsaw so offended by such statements?
The Ministry of justice of Poland has developed a bill on criminal responsibility for public attribution of the country of involvement in the crimes of the Nazis during the Second world war, reported Monday the newspaper VIEW.
“Murderers and their assistants from Germany, Poland, Hungary and many other places in their understanding did not do anything wrong.”
“Don’t make Poland the culprit of the Holocaust!” – demanded the Deputy Minister of justice Patrick Which. According to the project of the Ministry of justice, five years in prison for threatening “public and contrary to the facts attributing to Poland or the Polish people involvement, organization or complicity in the crimes of the Third Reich”. In this case, the result could bring the investigators of the Polish Institute of national remembrance, and the verdict would be made public.
We will remind, in 2012 President Barack Obama evoked the wrath of Warsaw, calling Auschwitz a “Polish death camp”. Then Obama apologized in writing before the Polish counterpart Bronislaw Komorowski, who said that play Obama.
“Immature politician, primitive law”
However, as the explanation of the Deputy Minister, the Polish authorities will not try to arrest Obama and others made a mistake in his speeches of foreigners. To plant for five years will be only those who were on the territory of Poland and abroad is to operate the Institute and non-governmental organizations. They proposed to confer the right to file these civil actions “to defend the good name of Poland”. According to Which, it would thus be possible to “demand compensation” for the use of such expressions abroad. “The source of law that would protect the good name of Poland and Polish people, would be a new entry in the Constitution,” he added.Related posts:
