The European Commission (EC) has initiated procedures against Poland and Hungary for the alleged violation of LGBT environmental laws in their countries.

Solidarity Poland MEP Patryk Jaki strongly criticized this move on social media, mocking the EC’s decision and calling it shameful.

“Great. Poland is being punished for zones which do not exist. How are they not ashamed?” he wrote on Twitter.

TVN24 correspondent to Brussels Maciej Sokołowski responded to Jaki’s tweet by explaining that “the EC has not initiated procedures due to the existence of LGBT-free zones, but because Poland refused to cooperate in explaining this issue and ignored the EC’s question on whether such zones actually existed.”

Jaki then answered, “Even better. So Poland is meant to explain why something that does not exist, does not exist. Maybe Poland should also explain why it’s responsible for 9/11, Africa’s colonization, and spaceflights to Mars?”

The European Commission initiated a violation procedure against Poland due to the so-called alleged “LGBT-free zones”. The EC emphasized that the Polish government had not fully and appropriately responded to the EC’s questions concerning the character and influence of bills concerning the so-called LGBT ideology-free zones accepted by a few Polish regions and municipalities.

In the case of Hungary, the EC initiated procedures due to the alleged violation of basic rights of LGBT persons. Budapest recently passed a law which bans or restricts access to content which promotes and shows transgenderism, gender change and homosexuality to underage persons. The law also requires children’s books with LGBT content to include a special annotation.
