Poland: Political Update


  1. Police have greater rights. The Sejm has granted the police very broad-scale rights. Police officers-with the consent of the appropriate district attorney and court-will be able to, among other things, subject persons suspected of committing a crime to inspection of correspondence, wiretapping and surveillance, as well as utilize confidential bank and insurance information.

  2. Tomaszewski leaves the RS AWS. Former RS AWS (Solidarity Electoral Action Social Movement) General Secretary Janusz Tomaszewski has left the party. According to him, the group's views have moved too far to the right. Tomaszewski and his supporters will run independently in the parliamentary elections. The chief of the electoral staff will be JĂłzef PĂłlkowski.

  3. George W. Bush in Poland. From 15 - 16 June, United States President George W. Bush stayed in Warsaw during his trip around Europe. Among the most important subjects touched upon by Bush and Polish President KwaÂniewski during their meetings was US support for expansion of NATO and for Poland's entrance into the European Union, as well as Poland's support for the American ABM missile defense program.
