Poland’s Internal Security Agency (ABW) allegedly illegally eavesdropped on important members of the country’s business community including former PM Donald Tusk and late businessman Jan Kulczyk.
Gazeta Wyborcza daily newspaper claims that former ABW officers are in possession of around 700 hours of footage which include conversations of Tusk, now the President of the European Council, and Kulczyk, once Poland’s richest man. Kulczyk died in late July.
The newspaper’s information is based on data from the secret files related to the investigation on the phone hacking scandal.
According to Gazeta Wyborcza, CBA notes that in the first half of 2014, Jan Kulczyk spoke with Donald Tusk about his investments in Ukraine. Kulczyk allegedly expected ABW to protect him against possible Russian provocation.
The alleged talks took place at the government villa of the Prime Minister in Warsaw. Gazeta Wyborcza writes that the 700 hours of illegal wiretaps were offered by, among others, two former officers of the Internal Security Agency.
Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz has said she is waiting “for the end of the investigation”.
“The case is being handled by the prosecutor's office and I would like, in addition to media reports, to receive some information from the prosecutor's office on this issue,” said Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz. (rg/rk)
