    Tusk’s Team Initiates Sweeping Changes: Reports of Commissions Disappear from Government Websites

    While the new ruling team has yet to settle into their roles, individual ministries are already undergoing significant purges. Whether in the case of the Ministry of Education, which has already seen the removal of several curators, or in matters related to Russia, reports from both the commission investigating Russian influences and the subcommission on the Smolensk tragedy have disappeared from government websites. The reason for this seems rather evident.

    One of the first actions taken by the new (but familiar) ruling team, led by Donald Tusk, was the dismissal of commission members investigating Russian influences in Poland, headed by Professor Sławomir Cenckiewicz.

    The team included Andrzej Zybertowicz, Przemysław Żurawski vel Grajewski, Łukasz Cięgotura, Marek Szymaniak, Arkadiusz Puławski, Andrzej Kowalski, and Michał Wojnowski.

    On the same day, before the members of the commission were dismissed, they presented a partial report summarizing three months of their work. The commission recommended, among other things, that Donald Tusk, Jacek Cichocki, Bogdan Klich, Tomasz Siemoniak, and Bartłomiej Sienkiewicz should not be entrusted with public positions responsible for the country’s security.

    Perhaps due to these recommendations (what other reason could there be?), the report has now vanished from government websites. Fortunately, you can read the report on the portal.

    The same fate befell the subcommission on the Smolensk tragedy!

    Yesterday, the new leadership of the Ministry of National Defense announced that Deputy Prime Minister and Minister Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz had signed a decision, approved by Deputy Minister Cezary Tomczyk (Civic Platform), to revoke the decision establishing the subcommission at the Ministry of National Defense to re-examine the plane crash of the Tu-154 on April 10, 2010.

    “The subcommission is being liquidated, and its members have until next Monday, December 18, to settle all documentation, real estate, and equipment used for subcommission work,” the statement said.

    In this case, the subcommission’s report can no longer be found on government websites. No worries, Niezależ got it here!
