Languages of publication
The author points out that the principles of, and procedures for, providing information to the Sejm by the President of the Institute of National Remembrance (IPN) are specified in the provisions of the Act on the IPN and in the general rules for the acquisition by the Parliament and its bodies of information from representatives of the competent authorities and State institutions contained in the Act on the Exercise of the Mandate of a Deputy or Senator, and in the Standing Orders of the Sejm. “Heads of other State offices and institutions” are in fact obliged to submit reports and render information, and to participate in committee sittings where matters relating to the scope of their activity are considered. The exception limiting the scope of this duty of the President of the IPN concerns information contained in the so-called classified collection in the archives of IPN, composed of the documents for which the head of the Internal Security Agency and the head of the Intelligence Agency or the Minister of National Defence, respectively, declared that – for a specific period – they cannot be made available to any person apart from the representatives appointed by them, if it is necessary for the state security.
