Tusk: I am not here in order to defend myself
European Council President Donald Tusk said on Wednesday he was under no doubt that Poland's right-wing government was trying to discredit him wit a smear campaign.
Tusk, a former Polish prime minister, was speaking as he was to testify in Warsaw as a witness in a military intelligence probe.
"I have no doubt that this is part of a political smear campaign. Its authors do not really hide it.As long as I have the impression that it is about clarifying the matter I will be available. If the process changes in order to prevent my work, of course I'll use immunity.," Tusk told local media.
Tusk was greeted by hundreds of his supporters at Warsaw's central railway station. Chanting "Free, European Poland" they nearly blocked the platform and later escorted Tusk as he walked to the prosecutors office about a kilometer away. There were also his opponents with the signs “The Court is waiting for you” and chanting “You will be in prison”.
Tusk has been summoned to testify in an investigation against former heads of military counter-intelligence (SKW) suspected of co-operating with foreign intelligence services without the required authorization of the prime minister, which was Tusk at the time.
