Poland’s prosecutor general accuses EC head von der Leyen of cheating

Poland’s prosecutor general accuses EC head von der Leyen of cheating

The Prosecutor General, Minister of Justice of Poland Zbigniew Zebro accused the head of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen of deceit and called the Vice-President of the European Commission Vera Yurova “a harmful Czech.”

In June, the European Commission approved a recovery plan for Poland’s coronavirus-hit economy totaling more than 35 billion euros. The Polish Plan (KPO) was approved with a delay and despite the EU’s continued claims to Warsaw regarding compliance with European rule of law. However, later the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, said that the EU will allocate these funds to Poland only if the reforms insisted on by the EC are implemented.

“I would like to comment on the publications of the international press, including the German one. The Spiegel newspaper is trying to present versions that it was not Mrs. Von der Leinen who deceived the Polish government, the Polish prime minister, but is really behind everything, I’m sorry, I don’t want to use the term “harmful Czech “but Mrs. Yurova,” Zebro said at a press conference on Monday.


At the same time, he believes that the head of the European Commission is personally to blame for the fact that Poland has not yet received money from the recovery fund after the pandemic.

“These are all fairy tales for children. It is Germany that is to blame for the lack of KPO funds in Poland. Lord Von der Leyen is and always has been an important German politician and in an obvious way deceived the Polish prime minister, the Polish president,” he said.
