Geremek refuses 'lustration declaration' for the second time

Bronisław Geremek, the MEP and former Polish foreign minister, has once again refused to submit a so-called 'lustration declaration', which is aimed at throwing light on whether he cooperated with the former communist secret service. A year ago he risked losing his mandate because of this. Talking to Kamila Wronowska, Andrzej Zoll, a law professor in Cracow and former president of the constitutional court, criticises Geremek's stance. "The last time Geremek rejected lustration his attitude was understandable. He said back then that he would not make any declaration before the constitutional court reached a decision. But now that the constitutional court has made its decision, every MEP is obliged to comply. Naturally, it's up to Geremek whether he obeys the law or not. But then he must accept the consequences. ... The voters should draw their own conclusions from what has happened."
