THE POLISH GOVERNMENT APPROVED A DRAFT LAW TO RANK DEPRIVATION OF COMMUNIST GENERALS
According to the bill, generals’ titles will be deprived, in particular, of the late communists Vojets Jaruzelsky and Ceslav Kishchak. It is reported by Upmp.news with reference to Polish Radio.
The Polish government adopted a draft law depriving the general’s rank, for example, of the representatives of the highest power of the communist Polish People’s Republic – generals Voitsjeh Jaruzelski and Cheslava Kishchaka.
Today, March 1, the Council of Ministers of Poland held a special meeting on this issue. Following the Government’s meeting, Prime Minister Mateusz Moravawski said that the new provisions should “restore the basic moral order”.
“We want to give things their real names: evil – to evil, good -to good, betrayal – to betrayal, heroism – to heroism”, – said the head of the Polish government.
According to him, the law also applies to persons who worked in the communist security organs from 1944-1990, for example, the commander of the unit who executed a participant in the anti-Nazi and anti-Communist movement of Danuta “Inka” Sedzikuvna.
As noted by Mateush Moravetsky, in the Polish pantheon there should be real heroes such as captain Witold Pilecki, who “can not be equated with General Kishchak, or General Mochara, who was on the other side – on the dark side of the night”.
The date of the meeting, during which the government adopted the bill, was chosen not by chance – today, March 1, Poland celebrates the National Day of Memory of the Cursed Soldiers.
According to the bill, persons who, while working in state security agencies, focused their activities on support of the communist regime and against the Polish state will be deprived of a rank. The justification to the bill states that his task is to “create a possibility of legal deprivation officer’s rank, in particular, from Wojciech Jaruzelski and Czeslaw Kishchak”, as well as other persons who were members of the Military Council of National Salvation (WRON), or worked in bodies of state security, referred to in lustration law.
According to the bill, the decision on the deprivation of the rank of generals and admirals will be taken by the president, and with regard to other officers and officers, the Minister of National Defense.
