The new Polish authorities suspect that their predecessors could have left them a wiretap, the Minister of Internal Affairs and Administration of the Republic Marcin Kerwiński on Polish Television said.

As a result of the parliamentary elections held on October 15 in Poland, a coalition led by Donald Tusk, who became prime minister, came to power. The Law and Justice Party (PiS), led by Jaroslaw Kaczynski, went into opposition.

“From the first day I checked to see if there were any bugs (listening devices). However, it is quite natural that the heads of the Ministry of Internal Affairs have the right to the protection of SOP (State Protection Service), and it is SOP that should carry out this check,” Kervinsky said.

He noted that shortly before the change of power, “unprecedented maneuvers took place” in the building of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. “It seems that in recent days they have changed the decor a little, some paintings have been changed,” the minister explained.


He clarified that so far no listening devices have been found in his office.
