Polish citizen arrested for calling for assassination of president and prime minister

A Polish citizen has been arrested in the Łódź Voivodeship for calling for the assassination of Polish President Andrzej Duda and Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, Polish television reported.

In a statement, the Polish Internal Security Agency ABW announced the detention of a person named “Piotr V.” (the detainee’s family is not mentioned in accordance with Polish law) on charges of calling for the assassination of the president and his prime minister, as the detainee posted insulting remarks and profanity against the president on social networks. The current president of Poland called for the assassination of his prime minister and police officers, said Stanislav Zarin, spokeswoman for the coordinating minister of the Polish special services.

The Polish prosecutor’s office has already charged Piotr W. with “publicly approving the assassination” and “calling for the assassination of the president, the current head of the Council of Ministers and police officers” and “insulting the president of Poland.”

The accused did not confess to the charges brought against him and claimed that he had only expressed his opinion without offending anyone. The accused was arrested and detained for 3 months by court order.
