Foreign Ministry of Poland recalled all visa consuls and the Consul General Marek Martinek from the Polish Consulate in Lutsk in connection with the abuses in the issuance of visas, the director of the consular department of the Foreign Ministry of Poland Miroslaw Gajewski told today a press conference in Warsaw.
Gajewski said that the Foreign Ministry officials have not found "direct evidence" of corruption in the actions of the consular staff, noting that such materials should be collected by the law enforcement officers.
"We cannot confirm this with the help of mechanisms we have. The only thing we could do in a situation where there is no full confidence in the consuls – to completely replace them," he said.
Gajewski specified that all five consuls were recalled from Lusk. The Consul General Marek Martinek was also recalled as he failed to provide appropriate control over the process of visa issuance.
