Poland: Writer who noticed Duda is a moron shouldn’t be punished

“The Polish Supreme Court on Tuesday backed an earlier ruling that a writer who called President Andrzej Duda a ‘moron’ on social media should not face prosecution. Insulting the head of state is a crime in Poland. Dismissing an appeal from the National Prosecutor’s Office as ‘manifestly unfounded,’ the court said the social media post by writer Jakub Zulczyk did not constitute a crime, and caused negligible harm, according to Polish outlet Onet. Zulczyk said he was relieved at being ‘finally acquitted.'” (05/23/23)
