WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Polish prosecutors are questioning the chief editor of the magazine that published secret recordings of conversations between top officials in a case that has severely shaken and embarrassed the government.
Restaurant conversations of some ministers and of the central bank head are among the recordings recently published by Wprost. In one of them, Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski says that Poland's alliance with the U.S. is worthless, a notion quickly denied by Poland's President Bronislaw Komorowski.
Chief editor of Wprost, Sylwester Latkowski, was being questioned Tuesday as a witness in the probe into the bugging, which is illegal in Poland and carries up to two years in prison.
The manager of a restaurant where politicians were secretly taped has been charged with two counts of eavesdropping.
