General Gromosław Czempiński recovers his pension based on the verdict of the Regional Court in Warsaw

On 29 November 2021, the Regional Court in Warsaw, 13th Division of Labour and Social Insurance issued a judgement on the strength of which it changed the appealed decision of the Director of the Pension Fund of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Administration and restored General Gromosław Czempiński’s right to a pension reduced because of the so-called “De-Communisation Act”.

The General was represented in the Regional Court in Warsaw by attorney-at-law Jan Dudzik of the P. J. Sowisło & Topolewski Law Firm.

The Regional Court upheld the argument presented by the Firm and stated unequivocally that the service of General Gromoslaw Czempinski in Department I of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (the civil intelligence service of the People’s Republic of Poland) did not have the character of “service for a totalitarian state”.

The decision of the Regional Court in Warsaw in favour of General Czempiński is yet another important ruling in the cases of appeals filed by our Law Firm on behalf of former officers of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MSW) against the decisions on the reduction of their pension benefits issued by the Director of the Pension Fund of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Administration.

General Gromosław Czempiński is a long-serving officer of the Polish civilian intelligence service. He is one of the co-creators of Polish intelligence after 1990. In the years 1993-1996, he was the Head of the State Protection Office.

The General is one of the heroes of the historic Samum Operation in 1990, and as one of the Polish intelligence officers he spectacularly helped free CIA agents from the then war-ravaged Iraq. The success of the operation contributed to the reduction of Poland’s foreign debt incurred during the communist era and the establishment of close relations with the USA.
