Polish president pardons former head of anti-corruption agency
Polish President Andrzej Duda has pardoned a former head of the country's anti-corruption agency who was found guilty of abuse of power, a gesture slammed by the opposition as politically motivated. A Polish court sentenced Mariusz Kaminski in March to three years in jail for actions he took while head of the agency in 2007 to combat corruption. Kaminski is close to Jaroslaw Kaczynski, leader of the conservative, eurosceptic Law and Justice party (PiS) which has just returned to power after winning an Oct. 25 parliamentary election.
