‘The Polish Government takes revenge on my wife for my civic activism’ – says Bartosz Kramek about the ODF President’s deportation

Poland placed Lyudmyla Kozlovska on the Schengen Information System (SIS) alert list which resulted in her immediate deportation from the EU territory. This opened yet another stage of the battle led by the Polish Government against the Open Dialog Foundation, considering that Bartosz Kramek, Head of the Foundation Board and Kozlovska’s husband is an activist known for his involvement in civic protests in front of the Polish Parliament and courts.

The ODF President arrived in Brussels on Monday at 10:40 pm. – I was among the first passengers who left the plane. – recalls Kozlovska in her interview for Onet. – I gave my passport to the police officer and he checked it in the system. Suddenly he asked me what kind of crime I had committed. I told him that I had committed no crime. So he asked me: ‘What is the reason that Poland has put your name on the wanted list?’. Then I realised what it was all about. I explained him that my husband was a civil society activist and I had been expecting that one day I would get deported because of him.

Bartosz Kramek is convinced that the deportation of Lyudmyla Kozlovska was a retaliation measure targeted against himself. – This is an example of retaliation for my public involvement  – he says – My wife had nothing to do with my article “Let the State come to stop: Let’s shut down the Government!” published in July last year.
