Warsaw - An opposition lawmaker in Poland is demanding explanations from the parliament speaker about why a right-wing weekly with an anti-Semitic headline was available at the parliament’s hotel.

Michal Kaminski said Wednesday he spotted the “Tylko Polska” paper with a front-page headline reading “How to Recognize a Jew” in the kiosk at the hotel, where lawmakers from outside Warsaw stay during parliamentary sessions, and where many of them dine.

He said it was an “absolute scandal” that such “filthy texts, as if taken from Nazi newspapers” are sold in the Polish parliament.

Kaminski appealed for explanations from Parliament Speaker Marek Kuchcinski, a member of the right-wing ruling Law and Justice party.

A spokesman for the parliament office, Andrzej Grzegrzolka, said the distributor was responsible for the choice of newspapers, while the newsagents were not employed by the parliament.

He said a court should look into the message propagated by the weekly and decide whether the title should be suspended. Polish law bans hate speech motivated by race or religion.
