KRAKOW – Two members of Poland’s National Broadcasting Council received death threats of an anti-Semitic nature following their decision not to renew the license of ultra-Catholic TV station Trwam and to reject its application to become part of the digital television multiplex system that will replace analog in the country.

Jan Dworak, the chairman of the council, and Krzysztof Luft, a senior board member, received a handwritten letter sent from a Warsaw post office stating: “If you continue to carry out the orders of the anti-Polish and anti-Catholic Jewish mafia of [Prime Minister Donald] Tusk and [President Bronislaw] Komorowski by not granting TV Trwam a license, the Freedom and Independence Court will issue a death sentence against you,” the Polish Press Agency reported.
