Prosecutors loyal to Moscow oversaw the Smolensk Crash Investigation
Published August 4, 2017
“Right now, we are doing an analysis of how many communist judges, prosecutors and militia men are still working in the law enforcement and judiciary in Poland,” says Adam Slomka, Solidarity Movement activist persecuted by the Martial Law judges to this day.

“As of today, only among the judges themselves, we counted about 700 of them. These are the judges who sentenced many Solidarity activists during the Martial Law; in other words, these were the people loyal to Moscow, and working with Moscow-controlled intelligence services. Not surprisingly, a significant number of former communist prosecutors who committed similar crimes during the Martial Law do equally well today. About 1,000 of them are still gainfully employed by the justice system. Due to their seniority, most of them hold positions in higher (appeal) courts. Similarly, the greatest percentage of them is in the Supreme Court, that is, 20 out of 83 total,” reports Slomka.
Among the most ardent communist agents among them was Gen. Janusz Godyn, who served as the Head Judge of the Military Chamber of the Supreme Court from 1990 to 2016. During the bloody anti-communist workers revolts, and under the Martial Law, he served as a judge in the industrial city of Katowice. According to the communist military publication, the Freedom Soldier, he sentenced dozens of workers from still mills and coal mines who took part in strikes. [Translator’s Note: For example, in one particular instance, he refused to approve transfer of severally beaten political prisoner to the hospital]. Notably, Godyn was one of the most devout communist criminals who still “practice law” in democratic Poland.
It is worth remembering that the secret chamber of the Supreme Court issued about 10,000 death sentences. The last death sentence was issued in the mid-1980s against the ambassadors of then Communist Polish People’s Republic (abbr. PRL) who defected to the West after imposition of the Martial Law on December 13, 1981. They also imposed a death penalty on the hero of the Cold War, Colonel Richard Kuklinski, who provided Russian invasion plans for Western Europe to the United States.
To this day, this corrupt clique of pro-Moscow judges is both significant in numbers and represents a powerful lobby in the Polish judiciary and politics. They are the ones who have been effectively blocking any attempts to carry out lustration1, as mandated by the Lustration Bill enacted by the Polish Parliament. Thus far, they also successfully blocked all efforts to bring to justice the communist criminals responsible for the Stalinist crimes, the crimes against the humanity, the crimes committed during and after the Martial Law, and protected the bloody junta dictators like Generals Jaruzelski and Kiszczak. See: Communist Torture Methods
The corrupt communist judges of the Supreme Court effectively blocked the lustration process by issuing, in 2010 a crucial ruling. Although, the Bill of the Parliament provides that the statute of limitation does not apply to the communist crimes, the Supreme Court held otherwise. It held that since the statute of limitation applies, such crimes cannot be adjudicated. This decision completely shielded the Jaruzelski junta and the prosecutors of the Martial Law from any accountability, and punishment, for their participation in the crimes against humanity and violations of human rights.
The justice was never served in Poland for the countless crimes, including mass murders of anti-communist resistance soldiers, known as the Doomed Soldiers, because of the premeditated actions of the Supreme Court. As of today, there are only three cases concerning the communist crimes that are pending before the Polish courts. One such case concerns the internment of Anna Walentynowicz in the military prison, another one is about the unlawful internment of a juvenile. The decision of the Supreme Court must be waived in order for the justice for communist crimes to be rendered.
For example, the role of the communist prosecutors was of particular importance during the first investigation of the April 2010 Smolensk crash, that claimed the life of the President Lech Kaczynski, and of the entire Central Command of the Polish Armed Forces. The Pro-Moscow prosecutors totally controlled this “investigation”. Among them was Colonel Slawomir Gorzkiewicz, famous for issuing indictments in 1982 for an attempts to “undermine Poland’s brotherly allegiance to the Soviet Union,” and for the Katyn lie. He was one of those who controlled the 2010 Smolensk Crash “investigation” while part of the Military Prosecutor’s Office. One ought to be mindful that it was punishable offense to accuse the Soviet Union of the Katyn murders.
Today, when Mr. Slomka watches protesters marching with candles in defense of “democracy,” “Western Values”, “freedom”, the Constitution, or of the Supreme Court, he rejoices. For he was the only one staging protests in front of the Supreme Court for decades. Ironically, there are protests in front of the Supreme Court again. This time however, they are orchestrated and frequented by his oppressors – the former communist judges and prosecutors who now decry the erosion of “democracy” in Poland. Ironically, many of those hands holding the signs in protest of the much-needed judicial reforms, also have on them the blood of the best sons of Poland. These “judges” and “prosecutors” have literally been getting away with murder for the last 27 years, but the time for change has at last come to Poland.

1. Lustration is a procedure used in Poland to ensure that members of the communist secret police, the UB(pol. Urzad Bezpieczenstwa) and SB(pol. Sluzba Bezpieczenstwa - Eng., Security Service [of the Ministry of Internal Affairs]; Polish Communist: government police ministry) and their informants do not retain the power that is considered to have been illegitimately gained. Thus, IPN(pol. Instytut Pamieci Narodowej - Zbrodni przeciwko Narodowi Polskiemu - Eng., Institute of National Remembrance - Commission for the Prosecution of Crimes against the Polish Nation) enforcement is one aspect of this.

The trip to Smolensk was expected to highlight Russia finally admitting culpability in the massacre, after long having blamed it on the Germans, an atrocity they had tried to conceal for over 70 years.
As for the reception committee, it had different ideas. Putin wasn’t looking forward to such an occasion. Into this poisonous reception brew was President Kaczynski’s well-known public criticism of Moscow and Putin, a habit that has ended the lives of others within Russia – and abroad. A few discouraging Russian requirements – that Kaczynski could not attend in any official capacity – did not halt the Poles. Kaczynski would go anyway on non-official, “personal” business. To Russians, such a distinction would be meaningless, not lessening the possible international excoriation of such an event. A problem ripe for a modern, Russian solution: a tragic, ‘natural’ accident.
Political enemies of Colonel Vladimir Vladimirovitsch Putin are falling ill with mysterious illnesses. It usually happens to them after they escape from their homeland, hoping that nothing bad can happen to them in the West.
The Russian secret service is using various poisons to get rid of inconvenient people, just like during the Soviet times, with the exception that Putin's people have more refined means at their disposal than the assassins of the day sent by Stalin, Khrushchev or Brezhnev. This happens to journalists in broad daylight, so that there is no doubt that anyone can get away scot-free with writing the truth about the atrocities of the Chechen War, or about any score-settling between the people in power.
It started as a possible case of food poisoning but within weeks turned into a grim spectacle of enormous political proportions: Aleksander Litvinenko, former member of the Russian secret service, died in his place of residence London last November, after having been poisoned with a radioactive substance [...] It is a wild tale full of conspiracies, assassination attempts and imputations. Litvinenko talks about his time with the secret service, about his experience in Chechnya, and in particular about the series of bomb attacks on Russian territory that led to the seizure of power by Vladimir Putin.
