Work of the parliamentary committee of inquiry into Pegasus begins

by Dignity News
On Monday 19 February, the Committee of Inquiry into Pegasus will have the first factual meeting. The special team of MPs is to investigate the legality, regularity and expediency of the activities undertaken using this software by the government, secret services and police from November 2015 to November 2023.

During the meeting, the committee will select advisers, submit evidence and establish a first list of witnesses. It will also discuss a work plan.

Evidence requests will also be considered. The committee will inform what material it will request and who will be called as witnesses. Committee member Marcin Bosacki, reported a few days ago that there would be “both requests to state institutions to collect documents on the subject and pass them on to the committee, as well as requests for evidence consisting of who to question before the committee”.

According to Magdalena Sroka, Chairwoman of the Investigative Committee, the first people to be summoned before the committee will be the former Minister of Justice and Prosecutor General Zbigniew Ziobro, former Prime Minister Beata Szydło, former Minister of the Interior and Administration (MSWiA) and Mariusz Kamiński, Minister Coordinator of the Special Services, as well as Maciej Wąsik, secretary of the Special Services College, former deputy head of the MSWiA.
‘We want to base our investigation on specifics and not on what has been said in the public space’, announced MP Magdalena Sroka.

She also stressed that ‘everyone is keen for the committee to start work as soon as possible, therefore the second meeting should take place no longer than 2-3 weeks after the first one’.
It should be recalled that last Tuesday, 13 February, during a meeting of the Cabinet Council chaired by President Andrzej Duda, Prime Minister Donald Tusk said that the President had at his disposal documents that confirmed with 100 % “the purchase and use, legally and illegally, of Pegasus”.
