Languages of publication
The author presents criminal proceedings against one of the prominent legal scholars, Mieczysław Siewierski, PhD. In the period of establishing the political system of the Polish People’s Republic, Siewierski was a prosecutor of the Supreme Court as well as the Supreme National Tribunal. In 1946, he acted as a prosecutor in the trial of Arthur Greiser, the butcher of Wielkopolska, due to his excellent knowledge of the German law. His authority as an expert was the result of his remarkable professional abilities, excellent education, impeccable character and high propriety. In 1950—1956 he was accused and tried by the authorities due to his political convictions and activities. In 1956, due to the events of Polish October, he was exonerated and fully rehabilitated. After that, he devoted his life to scholarly and research activity, and for years, he remained a university professor of criminal law and published extensively on the subject. Mieczysław Siewierski died on October 9, 1981.
