The Chancellery of the Prime Minister responded to the appeal of the Ordo Iuris Institute and Polish Journalist Association on fighting censorship on the Internet. The petition and report on this issue were submitted to the Chancellery in January this year. The Government has pledged to take steps to introduce relevant regulations that would limit the censoring of content by social media platforms.

“The freedom of expression is fundamental to democratic Poland,” stresses the Chancellery.

The response was also critical of censorship practices in social media. 

“We are saddened by and object to the endeavours of international corporations to limit freedom on the Internet,” claims the Chancellery.

The Chancellery has also promised that the Council of Ministers would take actions to introduce regulations governing the functioning of social networks. 

“We will introduce relevant regulations in Poland, similar to the ones that already exist in France or Germany. We will also propose making such instruments mandatory across the European Union,” stated the Chancellery.

The ECtHR dismissed the complaint about the appeal to God in the oath to the office of president

· The European Court of Human Rights has rejected a complaint by left-wing activists who had sought the removal of provisions in the Irish constitution requiring a person about to assume the office of president, or member of the Council of State, to take the oath with reference to God.

· The complainants, who claim to be non-believers, argued that such an obligation violates their freedom of conscience and religion.

This means that they would be included in Article 83 (1) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and, in this way, behaviours covered by these terms would be inevitably considered crimes by all EU Member States.
