"On November 14, 2018, at 12.35 CBA, he received a warrant from the prosecution to conduct a search at the headquarters of the Financial Supervision Directorate, as well as the place of residence of the former KNF President Marek Chrzanowski. The agents of the Central Bureau for the Fight Against Corruption took emergency action," said on Friday, Spokesperson of the Minister of the Service Coordinator, Stanislav Zharin.
This is a response to a Thursday interview with Wyborcza with former CBA chief Pawel Wojtunnik, who sharply criticized the CBA's pace of action in connection with the KNF scandal.
"This search is unpredictable and should take place much earlier," Wojtunik said. Asked when CBA agents should start searching at KNF and Chrzanowski, he replied: – In the first possible moment after receiving information on suspicion of a criminal offense, in order to prevent any evidence of crime, information, information media on which they can be evidence of a criminal offense. In my opinion, on the day of publication of the Gazeta Wyborcza on corruption in the KNF (November 13), a search could be conducted. Not later than the following morning. In such a situation, the consistency of loss of evidence is unambiguous and fundamental – that is the inability to prove crimes and condemnation. Loss of evidence is one of the worst things that can happen in the investigation. It can also be a crime.
