The Polish Journalists Association (SDP) adopted a motion in which it lambasted a November 5 resolution by the Association of German Journalists that it said spread “false opinions about the lack of press freedom and the persecution of journalists in Poland,” the niezalezna.pl website reported.
The head of the Polish Journalists Association, Krzysztof Skowroński, was quoted in the SDP resolution as saying that "all mass media" in Poland “operate on the basis of democratic law, respecting the principles of free and independent media.”
The Polish association also said in its resolution that “formulating untrue opinions and propagating them internationally is an abuse that destroys relations between our organizations and between our countries.”
The Polish Journalists Association appealed “to colleagues in the German Journalists Association to use journalistic reliability in describing the situation in Poland.”
