In a significant development, 101 non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and 550 public authorities have collectively signed and submitted a letter to Prime Minister Donald Tusk. The letter addresses the alarming human rights violations witnessed since the onset of the humanitarian crisis at the Polish-Belarusian border.
In a joint letter, they highlight the use of forceful pushbacks by Polish border guards, leading to violence and fatalities. The letter calls for immediate action to halt expulsions, citing contradictions with national and international law.
