Marek Chrzanowski after his resignation at PFSA. Sellin: we will explain it



  • Yesterday in the afternoon, Chrzanowski announced that he was resigning from the post of chairman of the Polish Financial Supervision Authority
  • Acceptance of resignation by the prime minister is the effect of the publication "Gazeta Wyborcza"
  • Tonight a government spokesman announced that Marcin Pachucki would be appointed as head of the Financial Supervision Authority

Today, Jarosław Sellin when asked on TVN24 is it good that Chrzanowski was in his cabinet after resigning for two hours, saying that this issue would be clarified. – Maybe it will also explain why he sat there, but that will be explained. I guarantee it will happen – he said in "Kropka nad i".

KNF spokesman Jacek Barszczewski informed that Chrzanowski was at the KNF headquarters today to give him an act of dismissing him from a function signed by the prime minister. Barszczewski pointed out that the former head of the KNF no longer had access to KNF resources, including documents.

This afternoon, Piotr Kaczorek from the Central Anti-Corruption Bureau confirmed that CBA agents entered the KNF office and secured evidence. The prosecutor's office entrusted the Central Anti-Corruption Bureau by conducting an investigation that had already begun regarding the neglect of power or failure to carry out tasks by the head of the KNF.

At night on TVN24, Jarosław Sellin assured that the country would "face such a scandal". – People who are responsible, if they have something sinful, will be responsible for that, different from what we had before 2015 – he said. He considered that the state's actions on this issue were immediately offended by the PFSA.

"Gazeta Wyborcza" wrote yesterday that, according to Leszek Czarnecki, owner of Getin Noble Bank, Chrzanowski, then head of the Financial Oversight Authority, in March 2018 he offered assistance to this bank in return for around PLN 40 million. Czarnecki noted this offer and told the prosecutor's office about the suspicion of committing a crime by the head of the KNF. The same was reported in the Financial Times, which, however, wrote "only" by PLN 13.6 million. These are differences that result from interpretations that differ from the level of company capitalization.
