The prosecutor's office made a decision in the case of Tomasz Lis. The journalist has no reason to be satisfied
The prosecutor's office is questioning witnesses in the case of Tomasz Lis.
Tomasz Lis has lost his job
At the end of May this year, the media circulated the information that Tomasz Lis had lost his position as editor-in-chief of the “Newsweek” weekly. The decision to terminate the publisher's contract with the journalist was immediate. However, the reasons behind such a decision were not disclosed to the public.
It was only after a few days that it turned out that some of Tomasz Lis' subordinates accused him of mobbing and a number of inappropriate behavior. The article by Szymon Jadczak indicated that Lis was supposed to humiliate his employees, allow himself to be inappropriate and vulgar behavior. It turns out that this situation was supposed to last longer.
The prosecutor's office is investigating the case of Tomasz Lis
A spokeswoman for the Warsaw prosecutor's office, Aleksandra Skrzyniarz, indicated that the proceedings were initiated in mid-July this year. It was initiated after reports of sexual harassment allegedly committed in Newsweek, as well as of “malicious and persistent violations of workers' rights”.
“As part of the activities carried out, the prosecution asked the publishing house for information. Witnesses are being interrogated,” we read in a statement sent by the spokeswoman for “Wirtualna Polska”.
It turns out that the persons summoned to the witness hearing, as well as the RASP publishing house issuing “Newsweek”, know about the initiation of the proceedings. The management of the publishing house assured that it would provide the prosecutor's office with all information at its disposal in this case.
Tomasz Lis does not know about the proceedings, at least that is what his comment shows. He added that if such a proceeding had actually been carried out, he would have been deeply amazed at it and would have tied it into the political context.
Dzień po wywiadzie, w którym ujawniłem motywy i skompromitowałem metody „ śledczego” z wp, informacja o postępowaniu prokuratury. Wszystko ładnie skoordynowane. Tylko trochę zbyt grubymi nićmi szyte.
