BRUSSELS, March 13 European Council President
Donald Tusk will not be able to come to Poland on March 15 to
testify as a witness in a case probed by Polish prosecutors,
because he has prior engagements in the European Parliament,
Tusk's spokesman said on Monday.
The district prosecutor's office in Warsaw has summoned Tusk
for questioning for Wednesday in relation to a case concerning
events in 2010 when Tusk was Polish prime minister, against
former secret service officials.
"President Tusk has been summoned as a witness and will
testify as a witness," the spokesman said.
"However, due to his obligation to report to the European
Parliament after each European Council, he will be in Strasbourg
for the European Parliament's plenary session on Wednesday,
March 15," the spokesman said.
"It will therefore not be possible for him to testify in
Poland on that day," he said.
