President's aide to meet Israeli ambassador over Poland's new anti-defamation bill

Krzysztof Szczerski, chief aide to Polish President Andrzej Duda, will meet Israeli Ambassador Anna Azari on Monday to discuss the recently-passed anti-defamation draft law.

The meeting has been requested by the Israeli side.

 

On Friday the Polish Sejm (lower house) passed an anti-defamation bill tightening penalties for the public use of the historically inaccurate term "Polish death camps”.

 

On Saturday, Israeli Ambassador to Poland Anna Azari appealed for changes in the proposed new regulations, noting that Israel feared they would hinder the speaking of the truth about the Holocaust. Azari stressed that the legislation evoked high emotions in Israel and was viewed negatively by the Israeli government. (PAP)
