Poland Drops Anti-Semitism Investigation Due to “Lack of Interest”
An investigation into anti-Semitism in Poland has been called off nearly a year after it began, due to what the country’s general prosecutor’s office says is a “lack of public interest”.
Early last year, Poland’s Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski filed a complaint after he found threatening anti-Semitic text on Polish internet sites, prompting an opening of an investigation in April of 2011.
One of the posts took aim at Sikorski’s wife. reading “Radoslaw Sikorski, the husband of the Orthodox Jewish American, the enemy of real Poles, American agent who is remote-controlled by his father-in-law,” according to the Jewish Chronicle.
Sikorski’s complaint with the prosecutor’s office also followed his discovery of websites that read “To the oven, Jews, to the oven. Hitler started, we will finish.”
