The amount of penalties for the first eight months of this year is seven times higher than in the whole of last year, according to the ministry’s response to the interpellation of MP Paulina Matysiak. “These numbers are shocking,” the deputy tells us. – The difference in the amount of contractual penalties is the result of a significant increase in the level of penalties, there are fewer irregularities – replies PKP Intercity.
