Warsaw's Lady Mayor Gronkiewicz-Waltz has been fined 6000 zł for failing to show up before the investigative commssion to which she had been summoned. She would surely be questioned about the many-million-złoty-worth ex-Jewish tenement her husband illegally bought for a song. Being privy to all the detials of his misdeed, she was faced by the dilemma of maintaining marital solidarity or truthfully testifying in the case. She cleverly chose yet a third option by claiming the commission was unconstitutional. That way she has bought some extra time before the dispute gets sorted out.

Regardless of the merits of this particular case, it provides an interesting point to ponder. What would you do in a similar situaiton, choose truth or marital solidarity? Does anyone know if a person questoined by such a commission is required to testify against one's spouse. In courts of law they are not.

There's a description which rings a bell about the husband of the wife of a poster here!

She cleverly chose yet a third option by claiming the commission was unconstitutional.

Not only is it unconstitutional but also illegal: the minion appointed by First Secretary of the Party Chairman Kaczynski to lead the 'commission' doesn't meet the minimum criteria set forth in the law PIS passed to start their latest witch hunt.

unconstitutional but also illegal.

So looks like she'll be getting a refund for the 'fine' then (though hopefully she won't have paid a penny), since the PiS kangaroo court that tried to summon her has no legal basis.

There may well even be the basis for a claim against whoever illegally summoned her.
