Opinia prawna w sprawie art. 71 ustawy o Instytucie Pamięci Narodowej – Komisji Ścigania Zbrodni przeciwko Narodowi Polskiemu
Legal opinion on the provision of Article 71 of the Act on the Institute of National Remembrance – Commission for the Prosecution of Crimes Against the Polish Nation (BAS-WAL-1831-1815)
In the author’s view, Article 71 of the Act on the National Remembrance Institute (IPN) it is a good legislative product which does not require changes. The possible establishment of supervision of the Inspector General for Personal Data Protection of the processing of personal data by the IPN would be a disproportionate obstacle to the Institute’s work, especially since the existing legal instruments of data protection and the rights of persons whose data are processed, has already formed an effective and tight system. According to the author, those regulations are consistent both with Article 51 of Poland’s Constitution and with EU law and the provisions of Article 8 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights, due to connections between the work of the Institute and the issue of protection of national security, that is a matter which remains the sole responsibility of Member States.
