“It [the dismissal] is connected with the violations that occurred in the process of visa issuing that were discovered in the consulate. The consul general was dismissed, as were five other consuls that were involved in the process,” Director General of the Foreign Service of the Polish Foreign Ministry Miroslaw Gajewski said, according to the radio.

He also said that the consuls deliberately issued visas to “certain groups of clients.” An investigation discovered that a company that received documents for visas created an artificial queue.

The prosecutor’s office of Katowice (Poland) is investigating into the case.
