Poland’s parliament votes to lift immunity of far-right lawmaker who extinguished Hanukkah candles

  • The parliamentary immunity of far-right Polish politician Grzegorz Braun has been revoked by MPs, allowing him to face potential criminal charges. He had extinguished candles on a menorah during a Hanukkah lighting ceremony in parliament, leading to a global outcry.
  • Braun's actions were deemed "disgusting" by parliament speaker Szymon Holownia, who emphasized a zero-tolerance policy for anti-Semitism in the assembly. The Confederation party was the only one to vote against revoking Braun's immunity.
  • Prosecutors plan to charge Braun with offenses such as destruction of property and insulting an object of religious worship, in addition to separate incidents from 2022-2023.
