[tnenews.pl]The news follows heated debate in Poland as to whether it is appropriate for the former president to attend what is the penultimate stage of the process by which the late pontiff is made a saint.
Referring to “certain voices in politics and the press,” Jaruzelski told the Polish Press Agency (PAP) that he wanted to avoid creating ‘a pretext for yet more sensationalistic information and tendentious interpretation.’
Jaruzelski added that his health was likewise not at its best, a further factor in prompting him to make the declaration.
