CWN Editor's Note: After a Polish report charged that Pope St. John Paul II concealed abuse evidence while he was Archbishop of Krakow, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki came to his defense.

The evidence cited against his “great fellow-countryman” is “very dubious,” said Morawiecki.

    Good for the Polish PM. The TVN24 station in Poland that brought the report is notorious for anti Catholic bias. "(...)concealed abuse evidence" is a manipulative language. The "authorities" at that time were marxist goons installed in Poland by the occupying Soviet regime. Their priority was to destroy the Church by any means. They were the same "authorities" who imprisoned Blessed Cardinal Wyszynski for his steadfast and heroic opposition to their attempts to control the Church in Poland.
