The nationalist group informed the prosecutor's office about the Israeli president’s possible violation of Holocaust speech legislation, which makes it illegal to blame the Polish nation for Nazi crimes committed on its soil.
"In a message to the prosecutor's office, we request questioning on the matter of anti-Polish words of Israeli President @PresidentRuvi [Reuven Rivlin] of the following witnesses: President @AndrzejDuda [Andrzej Duda], Minister @KSzczerski [Krzysztof Szczerski ]and Ambassador @Annaazari [Anna Azari, Israeli Ambassador to Poland]," Bosak posted on his Tweeter.
W doniesieniu do prokuratury wnioskujemy o przesłuchanie ws. antypolskich słów prezydenta Izraela @PresidentRuvi następujących świadków: prezydenta @AndrzejDuda, ministra @KSzczerski i ambasador @Annaazari— Krzysztof Bosak 🇵🇱 (@krzysztofbosak) April 17, 2018
Last week Rivlin and Polish President Andrzej Duda participated in the March of the Living in Auschwitz. After that, the Times of Israel newspaper reported that Rivlin told his Polish counterpart that Poland allowed Germany's genocide to take place. The alleged comments were not part of the Israeli president’s public remarks and were refuted by the Polish president.
The bill imposes fines or a maximum three-year prison sentence for anyone who ascribes "responsibility or co-responsibility to the Polish nation or state for crimes committed by the German Third Reich."
The bill has already provoked diplomatic tensions with Israel, Ukraine, and the United States. Tel Aviv, in particular, is concerned that the law could trigger the prosecution of Holocaust survivors if they testify against individual Poles who allegedly killed or gave up Jews to the Nazis.
