The Polish opposition party 'Civic Platform' will submit the amendment project to the law on the Institute of National Remembrance to the Sejm. Grzegorz Schetyna, the leader of the party reported this on Twitter.
'The writing of the law on the Institute of National Remembrance by Jaki (Patryk Jaki, the Deputy Justice Minister) and fatal interpretation by the Prime Minister (Morawiecki) led to the diplomatic catastrophe. We will submit the amendment project to this law on February 20', Schetyna wrote.
As we reported Polish leader Andrzej Duda has signed the bill with amendments to the law about the Institute of the National Memory in Poland. They stipulate criminal responsibility for denial of the Volyn Massacre of the 1940s and forbid the propaganda of the 'Banderite ideology'.
It also provides the criminal penalty for public accusations of Poland of crimes during Holocaust, of helping Nazi Germany, of military crimes or crimes against humanity. The bill forbids to use the combination of words “Polish death camp” when describing concentration camps that were on the territory of Poland. Any citizen of the country, including foreigners that breached the law will have to pay a fine or imprisoned for up to three years.
