Polish judge comments on state of democracy in the West 

MINSK, 6 May (BelTA) – Polish judge Tomasz Szmydt gave his take on the western democracy as he gave a press conference in BelTA’s press center in Minsk on 6 May, BelTA has learned.

"Many of my acquaintances share my opinion, but, of course, no one talks about it publicly," Tomasz Szmydt said. “When discussing topics, we turn off our phones. There are a lot of spyware. Some use them to eavesdrop on conversations without a court order."


"This is how the democracy works in the West," the judge stated.

The Polish judge asked the Belarusian authorities for protection. Tomasz Szmydt is a judge of the 2nd Department of the Voivodeship Administrative Court in Warsaw. Previously, he held various positions in the judicial system and justice bodies of Poland. He was the head of the legal department at the National Council of Judges of Poland. 

Due to his disagreement with the policies and actions by the authorities, he was forced to leave Poland and is currently in Belarus. He was persecuted and threatened for his independent political position. Tomasz Szmydt declares his protest to the Polish authorities, who, under the influence of the United States and the UK, are leading the country to war.
