As money.pl unofficially learned, the conference could be a major blow to the government ahead of the elections Law and Justice Partyfather In several cases, NIK decided to notify the Public Prosecutor’s Office of the irregularities detected. Among these matters is the waste of public money in building Covid hospitals.
The fund is outside parliamentary oversight
The COVID-19 Fund was initially created to combat the coronavirus pandemic and “counter the effects of the social and economic crisis” caused by the pandemic. In 2022 alone, more than PLN 46 billion will be spent. It was run by Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.
The Prime Minister has the final say on the decision on how much of the money will be spent – we wrote in February 2023.
Dr. Slawomir Dodik, President of the Institute of Public Finance, and former Director of the Analysis Department Ministry of Finance This fund was dubbed the “Prime Minister’s Tax Haven”.
In my opinion, it is shameful that the COVID-19 Prevention Fund does everything. I call it Prime Minister Morawiecki’s tax haven. The Polish system will also be financed through this fund. And this fund, although its expenses amount to billions of zlotys, was not included in this budget at all – Dodik said in a previous interview with money.pl.
As we described, at some point the Fund transformed into an entity from which money would flow, for example, to farmers suffering from African swine fever. Only for less than a month from the beginning of its existence (that is, until the end of March 2020) It was, in fact, a fund intended for the state. In the spring of 2020, it began operating outside the state budget and parliamentary oversight, which has long been strongly criticized by experts.
