Sejm debate flares over accusations against Ziobro

A row broke on Friday amongst Sejm deputies over the accusations against former Justice Minister Zbigniew Ziobro
The conflict was so serious that Sejm Speaker Bronislaw Komorowski organized a vote on a motion from Law and Justice (PiS) to call for the seating of the Convent of Seniors and take a break.

The deputies, however, did not pass the motion, which led to PiS deputies walking out of the chambers. Just minutes later PiS head Jaroslaw Kaczynski, together with over 100 of his deputies, blocked the stairway in Sejm and accused Donald Tusk of violating the rules of democracy.

The former PM also demanded that the Justice Minsiter Zbigniew Cwiakalski revealed the details behind the investigation against Zbigniew Ziobro. PiS deputies have submitted a motion to the prosecutor to run an investigation into whether the accusations against Ziobro were falsified.
