Summary Report on the Activities of the Commissioner for Human Rights in 2022
CHR Office published Summary Report on the Activities of the Commissioner for Human Rights in 2022.
"2022 was a complex and challenging year for the people of our country and the institution of the Commissioner for Human Rights. We started to recover from the health and social trauma caused by the COVID-19 virus pandemic. The problems regarding the judiciary remained unsolved and the related rulings of European courts were not implemented. The refugee crisis on the Polish-Belarusian border continued. In addition, new problems significantly impacting citizens and the functioning of the state emerged. They included the war in Ukraine, economic problems and perturbations connected with the implementation of the Polish Deal, and tightening of the Criminal Code provisions. The scale and consequences of these phenomena resulted in a record number of 75,239 applications received by the CHR Office." - wrote Marcin Wiącek in the Summary.
