HEARING OF PRESIDENT OF REPUBLIC OF POLAND AS A WITNESS IN JUDICIAL PROCEEDINGS

Abstract

The Author attempts to analyse the previous and current legal regulations concerning the hearing of the incumbent President, beginning with the pre-war Code of Civil Procedure from 1932, which allowed for such a possibility in article 287. It is up to the President to determine the time and venue of the hearing. This provision has never been repealed and the current Constitution does not put a ban on it either: testifying in court does not violate the separation of powers or balance of power, and submission to the power of a judge does not deprive the President of the honours of the highest representative of the Republic of Poland. The course o f hearing a President by a judge is also discussed with reference to the potentially applicable stipulations of the Code of Civil Procedure. The Author also considers the hypothetical possibility of punishing the President by a judge for default of appearance, disturbance of order, as well as the possibility of refusal to testify on matters bound by the state secret, etc.
