In the investigation into the acceptance of a financial advantage in relation to the issuance of a positive fire protection opinion and obtaining of a decision to organise a mass event at the National Stadium in Warsaw in 2014, the CBA officers from Katowice have detained two persons. More of such contract have been evidenced. We call for reporting to the CBA to benefit from the non-punishment clause set forth in the Criminal Code.
Today, by order of the Masovian Field Division of the Organised Crime and Corruption Department of the National Public Prosecutor’s Office in Warsaw, the officers of the Regional Office of the CBA in Katowice have detained two persons.
The detentions are connected with the investigation into the acceptance of a financial advantage in relation to the issuance of a positive fire protection opinion, which, in turn, determined the obtaining of a decision to organise a mass event at the National Stadium in Warsaw in 2014.
The money reached the Support Fund of the Headquarters of the Voivodship Fire Service as a donation.
In the course of the investigation, numerous donation contracts have been revealed, which determined obtaining positive fire protection opinions on mass events organised at the National Stadium in Warsaw.
The Central Anti-Corruption Bureau calls the organisers of such events, who gave financial advantages in the form of a donation, to report to the CBA and take advantage of the non-punishment provisions under art 229 § 6 of the Criminal Code: “The perpetrator set forth in § 1-5 shall not be punished where the financial or personal advantage or the promise thereof was accepted by a person performing a public function, where the perpetrator informed of the fact an authority established to prosecute criminal offences and disclosed all material circumstances of the criminal offense before the authority learnt about the criminal offence.”
