Politicians demand changes to the Penal Code
Solidarna Polska wants to tighten the provisions of the Penal Code relating to offending religious feelings. According to the politician in Zbigniew Ziobro's party, the regulations currently in force are insufficient, the more so that we are dealing with an increasing number of attacks against the Catholic Church and believers.
All of this was announced during the press conference that took place in front of the Lublin church. Of Christ the King. The politicians of Solidarity Poland argued that, inter alia, this temple “fell victim to an attack by leftist circles”. The evidence for the thesis proclaimed by the politician Ziobro was “the already blurred inscription, which was scrawled during the protests of women”.
Jan Kanthak argued that his group wanted to clarify the regulations and eliminate hooligan behavior towards faith and believers from the public space. He added that his group is committed to the protection of all believers, regardless of religion.
entriesCitizens' signatures are being collected, so that the attempts to carry out this idea through the parliamentary route have failed. Kanthak emphasized that the aim of the group to which he belongs is not to push the Law and Justice against the wall, but to try to show that the changes they postulate are desired by the Pole.
Changes in regulations
The first of the changes proposed by Ziobryst are to remove the word “maliciously” from Art. 195 of the Criminal Code. Also art. 196 of the Criminal Code, which, after the amendments, would read as follows: freedom up to 2 years “.
