Today, the District Court in Warsaw has decided that government-run Polish Television (TVP), tax-financed, has to apologize to the New Covenant Church in Lublin for calling it a “secret Lublin sect”. The case is about an article on the TVP Info website from October 2019. At the hearing, Samuel Pereira from TVP and pastor Paweł Chojecki from New Covenant Church in Lublin spoke.
TVP is to apologize to the Church of the New Covenant in Lublin for calling it a “secret Lublin sect” in an article published on the TVP Info portal, headed by Samuel Pereira at the time.
The apology is to be posted on the website and on TVP’s Twitter account.
Shortly after the announcement of the sentence, Pastor Paweł Chojecki commented on the case in the live program of Against the Tide TV. He said that he knew Samuel Pereira personally and that they had participated in patriotic demonstrations together.
