Kochański Zieba & Partners wins the case of Jan Rokita against Konrad Kornatowski

By its judgment dated 19 June 2015 entered in the case brought by Jan Rokita against Konrad Kornatowski (former Police Commander in Chief), the Regional Court in Warsaw allowed the claim and rendered unenforceable the 2009 judgment of the Court of Appeal ordering Jan Rokita to make a statement of apology to Konrad Kornatowski in Dziennik newspaper.

In the oral reasons to the judgment, the Regional Court shared the view of the plaintiff represented by Konrad Orlik, attorney from Kochański Zieba Rapala & Partners, that to publish such a statement is objectively impracticable as “Dziennik Polska-Europa-Świat” (Daily Poland-Europe-World) newspaper is no longer printed; it is now available online only. Only the court hearing an action to limit or cancel enforceability of an enforceable title may examine, as to the merits, whether or not the judgment is enforceable where the newspaper in which a statement of apology was to be published is no longer printed. The judgment is not final yet.

Jan Maria Rokita was represented by Konrad Orlik and Tobiasz Szychowski, advocates from the Litigation and Arbitration Department of Kochański Zięba Rapala & Partners.

Poland Arbitration 2011

One issue under discussion is whether Poland should become a party to the Washington (ISCID) Convention. Because Poland is a party to more than 60 bilateral investment treaties (BITs) and has recently been a party to several high-profile investment arbitration proceedings, becoming a party to the ISCID Convention is discussed among practitioners, but faces strong opposition on the government side. Apart from that, another issue is whether Poland should continue to maintain BITs at all with other countries within the EU.
