    Police Detain Former Officials Kamiński and Wąsik at Presidential Palace

    Police apprehended Mariusz Kamiński and Maciej Wąsik at the Presidential Palace premises, according to reports from the Niezależna portal. Officers entered the Presidential Palace, identified the individuals, and proceeded to detain them.

    Former Minister of Internal Affairs, Mariusz Kamiński, and former deputy, Maciej Wąsik, received a two-year prison sentence on December 20th last year following a conclusive judgment related to the ‘land affair.’ Consequently, the Speaker of the Sejm took action to terminate their parliamentary mandates.

    The District Court for Warsaw-Śródmieście disclosed that enforcement documents, including directives for the transfer of Mariusz Kamiński and Maciej Wąsik to correctional facilities, have been readied. Despite presidential pardons and the Supreme Court overturning Hołownia’s decision, a police operation targeted the parliamentarians.

    Today, both Kamiński and Wąsik were reportedly present at the Presidential Palace. Niezależ confirmed that law enforcement officers entered the Palace, detaining MP Maciej Wąsik on-site, and subsequently apprehending MP Mariusz Kamiński. Civic Platform party members have corroborated this information.

    According to Janusz Woźnicki, the legal representative of Maciej Wąsik speaking on Telewizja Republika, the detained politicians are presently held at the Warsaw VII Police District Command on Grenadierów Street. Woźnicki indicated an imminent transfer within a few hours to the Warsaw-Grochów Detention Center.
