Poland's Central Anti-Corruption Bureau (CBA) has detained former Deputy Energy Minister and former Senator Adam G., who was in charge of the mining industry, on corruption charges.

This was reported by Polish media, in particular TVN 24.

Adam G., a former MP and senator from the ruling Law and Justice party has already been arrested by the court.

According to journalists, the charges relate to taking a large-scale bribe.


The Wzborcza newspaper clarified that it was a bribe of 170 thousand zlotys (almost 40 thousand euros).

CBA spokesman Robert Sosik noted that businessman Jarosław K. was also detained in the case.

"The prosecutor of the Silesian Division of the Department for Combating Organized Crime and Corruption of the National Prosecutor's Office in Katowice charged Adam G. with receiving an undue benefit in excess of PLN 170,000 in connection with the performance of his official duties, inciting and aiding in the issuance of fictitious VAT invoices, as well as using a document certifying false information," Sosik said.
