The Supreme Court upheld a cassation appeal in the case of Dr. Bawer Aondo-Akaa, a prolife activist defended by Ordo Iuris lawyers. A cassation appeal was filed by the Public Prosecutor General. The reason for his previous conviction was the display of posters showing the effects of abortion. The District Court considered this to be a prank designed to cause scandal in a public place, i.e. an act that fulfills the features of Art. 51 § 1 of the Code of Petty Offenses.
The European Parliament is going to consider the issue of waiving Guy Verhofstadt's immunity in connection with criminal proceedings initiated by Dr. Bawer Aondo-Akaa before the District Court in Warsaw.
