Cimoszewicz looking cleaner every minute


LPR's Giertych casts more doubts over reliability of Jarucka's statement

On Sunday, the leader of the right wing League of Polish Families (LPR) Roman Giertych publicly undermined the credibility of Anna Jarucka, the main witness of the Sejm investigating commission which accused Włodzimierz Cimoszewicz of forging his wealth declaration. This is now the second event discrediting Jarucka. In an interview for Radio Zet Giertych stated that Jarucka did not tell the truth saying that the Sejm Speaker authorized her to erase the Orlen shares from his wealth declaration. "I have a hypothesis that the authorization concerned not Orlen shares, but BMC shares," said Giertych. BMC is a consulting company co-established by Cimoszewicz in 1997. He sold his stake in the firm in April 2002. The shares were not included in his declaration from January 2002, but appeared in the one from April 2. Cimoszewicz's spokesman Tomasz Nałęcz and SLD leader Wojciech Olejniczak, who were present in the radio station during the interview, reacted to Giertych's statement with laughter. According to Rzeczpospolita daily, Cimoszewicz will be released from all charges brought by the Warsaw Prosecutor. Anna Jarucka, in turn, may be charged with forging the document giving her power from Cimoszewicz to change his declaration.
