Resolution on unlawful pressure on Kraków judges in connection with the proceedings in the case of prosecutor Mariusz Krasoń
The Management Board of the Association of Judges „Themis” expresses its firm objection to unlawful and unacceptable attempts to exert pressure on 3 judges of the Kraków Court of Appeal, 4 judges of the Regional Court in Kraków and 5 judges of the District Court for Kraków-Śródmieście by the prosecutor of the Internal Affairs Department of the National Prosecutor’s Office, Piotr Myszkowiec in the association with the examination by judges of cases related to the reinstatement to the former position prosecutor Mariusz Krasoń. The above-described action in the case of the alleged abuse of powers and failure to fulfill obligations by judges (Article 231 § 1 of the CC) is an unparalleled attempt to put pressure on independent judges by the politicized prosecution, especially since the judge-repporteur of the main case was also summoned under the procedure described.
Prosecutor Krasoń is not only a member of the “Lex Super Omnia” Prosecutors’ Association, which fights for a return to the model of an independent prosecutor’s office, but also the author of a critical resolution adopted in May 2019 by the Assembly of Prosecutors of the Regional Prosecutor’s Office in Kraków, signaling pressure on prosecutors. Due to the described actions, he became an inconvenient person for the authorities of the politicized prosecutor’s office, and as a result of harassment he was unjustifiably moved to a place of right located 200 kilometers from his place of residence, and appealed to the Kraków court against the decision to transfer.
