The head of the Internal Security Agency issued a negative opinion on Ludmiła Kozłowska's application for an EU residence permit for long-term residents. As a result, it was forbidden to enter the territory of Poland and the EU – said the spokesman of the special services minister coordinator Stanisław Żaryn. Kozłowska is an activist of the Open Dialog Foundation.
As explained by Zaryn, a negative opinion – drawn up by the ABW counter-intelligence department – relates among other things to "serious doubts" regarding the financing of the Open Dialog Foundation managed by Kozłowska, which "may have further legal consequences" .
"Due to legal restrictions and ongoing tax audits, currently detailed information on this issue can not be passed on to the public" – added the spokesman for the minister of special services coordinator.
The Onet portal said last week that the head of the Open Dialog Foundation, Ludmiła Kozłowska, was banned from Poland and the EU. According to the portal, Kozłowska flew to Brussels last Monday, where the foundation has its office. At the airport, after checking the passport, it appeared that it could not cross the border – it was on the list of persons for removal from the Schengen area.
According to reports, Kozłowska has been included in the Schengen Information System (SIS) by the Ministry of the Interior and Administration, which makes it possible to check people crossing the Schengen area; the woman was marked with the highest warning.
According to non-official PAP information – obtained from government sources – it is not the Ministry of the Interior and Administration and the Office for Foreigners Kozłowska is registered in the Schengen Information System (SIS). This was done at the request of the "competent authority"; the reason was the security of the state.
After stopping Kozłowska at the airport, the Belgian Ministry of the Interior would ask the Polish Ministry if he maintained his position with regard to Kozłowska. Poland – according to the portal – confirmed, and the woman on Tuesday afternoon by plane to Ukraine deported – to Kiev. Earlier a woman in Poland applied for an EU residence permit for long-term residents, because she has lived and worked in the country for more than 10 years and her husband is Polish – said the portal.
Obtaining Kozłowska prohibits access to Poland from the EU itself and considers her husband Bartosz Kramek as an expression of repression by the Polish authorities for Kramek's actions in defense of free courts.
Referring to Zaryn's communication in her case, Kozłowska wrote on Monday on Twitter that no office has any doubts about the funding of the Open Dialog Foundation and that all of its reports are transparent and public. "Suddenly the ABW, after our participation (…) in the protests in defense of the constitutional state, makes a" secret "report, why is it secret? Because there is no evidence" – she estimated.
As she adds: "(Mariusz) Kamiński personally" avenges Bartosz Kramek "because he appeals to the Supreme Court." "(Kaminski) is constantly changing tactics of the attack: first forced management by the Foreign Ministry, control, slander, accreditation in the EP, alleged agentality – did not work." Now, financing "- wrote Kozłowska.
Kramek – a member of the Open Dialog Foundation Council – also decided that the deportation of his wife was actually aimed at him. "We are dealing with retaliation for my public activities," he said in an interview with Onet.
During the protests in July last year against the parliamentary law on the Supreme Court and the previously adopted amendments concerning the National Council for the Judiciary and the system of common courts, Kramek published a message on Facebook entitled "Leave the state: let us see the government Close!". It contains a list of 16 proposals of actions, aimed – according to the author – to stop the "coup PiS on the rule of law in Poland", inspired by, among others, his experiences of the Ukrainian Euromaidan.
"It is worth thinking about open and broad action to temporarily pay no taxes and other debts to the state treasury under the flag of, for example, I do not pay for the PiS, and it has to be looked at in detail. peaceful, "wrote an activist in one of the proposals. Kramek's appeal has also been made available in the profile of the Open Dialog Foundation.
According to the correspondence that the Foundation has given to the PAP, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has requested the Foundation to receive ownership within three days of receiving the letter of websites, profiles on social networks and other public websites managed by the Foundation. are or are being managed or underpinned by them, "incite information to illegal activities, including activities addressed to the government."
In response, Kramek emphasized that the foundation "does not exercise an active activity and as such has no websites or profiles on social media." "Therefore, it is not possible to remove the desired content" – he stressed.
For statutory purposes, established in 2009, the Open Dialog Foundation, there are defenses of human rights, democracy and the rule of law in the post-Soviet region, especially in Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine. In 2013-14 she led, among others, "an observation mission of support" during the wave of protests on the Kiev Maidan. The Foundation has its permanent representations in Warsaw, Kiev and Brussels.
"The head of the Internal Security Office, who fulfills his legal duties, issued a negative opinion on the request of Ms Ludmiła Kozłowska to grant the EU residence permit for long-term residents, which led to Ludmiła Kozłowska entering the territory of Poland and the European Union has invaded.
