Archbishop condemns Polish government stance on refugees

WARSAW (CNS): Archbishop Henryk Muszynski, the former archbishop of Gniezno, accused his country’s government of falsifying its data on refugees, while also fuelling a crisis with Germany over new demands for war reparations.

He was speaking amid controversy over the Polish government’s refusal to offer shelter to refugees and asylum-seekers from Syria, Iraq and other war-torn countries.
