The storm around the scandal related to reports of the use of the Pegasus spy system in Poland is not over. In 2019, the target of cyberattacks was, inter alia, the mobile phone of the current senator Krzysztof Brejza, who then led the campaign of the Civic Coalition to the parliamentary elections.
“Problems with Polish Law”
Elżbieta Jakubiak was asked to comment on the Pegasus reports in the Wirtualna Polska program. – I understand that there is such a tool. On the other hand, Mr. Giertych and Mr. Senator Brejza, these are people who probably have some problems with Polish law today, I think, so I will not pretend that I take their speeches seriously. This is their right to defend themselves – stated the head of President Lech Kaczyński’s political cabinet in 2005-2007. there was something wrong, his public statements would be scrutinized one day. ”
Let us remind you that, according to the head of the Polish government, “on the basis of reports from one news agency, we cannot conclude that some or other persons fell victim to the services”. – I do not have any such knowledge, of course, but I would like to point out that also here we can potentially deal – if such facts are confirmed – with the operation of very different services and I think that the relevant authorities will clarify this issue – said Morawiecki.
“We’ll meet in the court”
Krzysztof Brejza responded to the words of Elżbieta Jakubiak via his account in the social network Twitter.
“Mrs. Elżbieta Jakubiak in the @wirtualnapolska program deigned to say today that I probably have” some problems with Polish law “, therefore she doubts the info on Pegasus. There have never been any proceedings against me. If I do not correct the slander – we will meet in court” – wrote the senator. And he added: “I would like to remind you that Pegasus is a cyber weapon created by former employees of Aman’s 8200 Department (Israeli military intelligence) to fight terrorism. In Poland, this military weapon was used to illegally intercept @KO_Obywatelska staff during elections.”
