Spy Device Found in Polish Government Meeting Room

In a potential security breach, Polish security services discovered and successfully dismantled a suspected eavesdropping device in a meeting room scheduled to host the Council of Ministers in Katowice. According to Polish RMF FM, the incident has prompted an ongoing investigation spearheaded by the Internal Security Agency (ABW).

“The Internal Security Service (SOP), working in collaboration with the Internal Security Agency (ABW), has detected and dismantled devices that could be used for eavesdropping in the room where the Council of Ministers meeting is scheduled to take place in Katowice today,” confirmed Jacek Dobrzyński, spokesman for the Minister Coordinator of Special Services, in a statement shared on social media.

The device’s discovery occurred during a routine security check of the premises, according to Col. Bogusław Piórkowski, spokesman for the Commandant of the SOP.

Special Services Coordinator Tomasz Siemoniak acknowledged the discovery and assured that the room has been secured. He emphasized that a full investigation is underway to determine the origin and those responsible for attempting to eavesdrop.

Jan Grabiec, head of the Chancellery of the Prime Minister, expressed confidence in the security services while reaffirming that the government will continue operations as normal. He added, “The government is aware that there may be forces and entities interested in compromising the confidentiality of official meetings.”

Alicja Waliszewska, spokeswoman for the Silesian Voivode, offered that the device may have been used historically for communication between rooms. She indicated that a former employee installed the device but that the exact installation date remains unknown.

Waliszewska confirmed that today’s planned government meeting at the Silesian Voivodeship Office in Katowice will proceed as intended.
