MEP wins order banning media from discussing his private life

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Polish Member of the European Parliament famous for his stance on ‘traditional family values’ has won a gagging order against the media in Poland, preventing them from revealing details about his own personal life.

Jacek Kurski, of Solidarna Polska, called in his lawyers after the publication Nie asked him to answer questions on activities that could be understood to be at odds with traditional family values. The ban on revealing details of the court case applies to all media in Poland.

Mr Kurski, who represents Law and Justice (PiS) for Gdańsk, hit the headlines in 2010, as the only MEP not to object to the stoning to death of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, an Iranian woman accused of adultery. He later changed his vote in support of the woman, claiming that he had made a mistake.

Mr Kurski spoke about the need for a free press during his former career, as a journalist.
