Comment on the editorial The Times view on Russia sanctions: Punishing Putin, 23 February 2021.
Polish authorities used the service of occupational medicine service against my wife in 2015. They manufactured fake medical statement to expel her from the job of pianist and piano teacher at the State School of Music in Zielona Góra. This was done with the approval of the government. We have detailed evidence, including sound recordings, which are now available on Youtube. My wife was accused by a psychologist of having unspecified delusions. She was forced to visit a psychologist twice as part of a routine occupational medicine checkup under threat of losing her job.
Earlier, we wrote many letters to state officials pointing out violations of law and human rights during an intense campaign against our family which went on for years. We have notified the members of the European Parliament several times. They ignored us. We have also contacted human rights organisations who have remained silent.
Europe likes declarations about human rights but hates to engage with the victims and actually do anything.
My family members, including my parents, all Polish citizens, were prisoners of Communist concentration camps in northern Russia after WWII. There is space at the European Parliament for members of Communist totalitarian organisations but there is no space for victims of Communist methods in a European Union country.
