President Andrzej Duda has pardoned a nationalist, Marika Matuszak (pictured above), who was jailed for being part of a group that violently attempted to steal a rainbow-coloured bag from a woman participating in an LGBT march. The president’s decision has been welcomed by figures associated with former justice minister Zbigniew Ziobro, who earlier this year ordered that Matuszak be released from prison while her request for a pardon was heard. He argued that she received an unduly harsh sentence. On Tuesday, Duda’s chancellery announced that he had decided to pardon both Matuszak and Michał Ostrzycki, who was also convicted for his role in the same incident.
