Earlier in the day, Duda said he decided to sign the bill into law. "The president has signed the amended law on the Institute of National Remembrance," Lapinski told PAP news agency.
In January, the Polish Senate passed a bill which outlaws any accusations of complicity in war crimes during World War II, including the Holocaust, made against Polish people, as well as any denials of the killings of Poles by the Ukrainian Insurgent Army, along with criminalizing the propaganda of Ukrainian nationalist ideology.
The legislation was adopted by the Polish Senate on February 1, drawing the indignation of top Israeli officials, who expressed their disagreement with the law, which, according to them, distorted historical truth, and demanded that it be reviewed.
The Polish Institute of National Remembrance said that, the new legislation does not limit scientific research and the freedom of speech, saying that Istael's interference into the matter was inappropriate.
