Poland bans human rights activist from travelling to Schengen countries

Ukrainian Lyudmyla Kozlovska, president of the Warsaw-based Open Dialogue Foundation, whose objective is to protect human rights, democracy and rule of law in the post-Soviet area, has been expelled from the Schengen countries. The Polish Ministry of the Interior and Administration added her name to the Schengen Information System, which includes names of individuals and entities for the purposes of national security, border control and law enforcement. Ms Kozlovska was travelling to Brussels.

“I presented my passport to the border force officer, who looked my passport up in the system and asked what crime I had committed . I responded ‘none.’

‘So why is Poland after you?’ he asked.

I already knew what was going on. I said I am the wife of a civil rights activist and I expected to be deported because of his activities sooner or later,” Ms Kozlovska told the Onet web portal.

Her husband, Bartosz Kramek (pictured with Lyudmyla above) is known for his protests against Poland current government. In 2017, Mr Kramek called for civil disobedience against the ruling Law and Justice party on Facebook.
