The former transport minister of the Civic Platform and People’s Party government is accused of several crimes including taking bribes and money laundering while at helm of Ukrainian Road Authority. Additional charges include corruption during his term in Donald Tusk’s government. According to the Warsaw District Court, Sławomir Nowak should spend more time on remand because there is a high probability that he did indeed commit the alleged crimes, could mislead the investigation, and the eventual prison term, if convicted, is quite long.
