Polish security agents have uncovered bugging devices in a meeting room set for a session of the Council of Ministers, which was scheduled for Tuesday in Katowice.

Authorities have not yet specified who may have installed these devices, according to official sources reporting to Reuters.

"The State Protection Service, in collaboration with the Internal Security Agency, found and removed devices capable of eavesdropping in the room designated for today’s Council of Ministers meeting in Katowice," stated Jacek Dobrzynski, a spokesperson for the security services, on the social media platform X.

Dobrzynski did not disclose the origins of the devices but confirmed that the meeting would proceed as scheduled at 1000 GMT.

The agenda includes discussions on energy policy, focusing on transitioning from coal and a strategy to mitigate the effects of rising electricity costs on low-income households.

Additionally, on Monday, the government disclosed that it is investigating whether a Polish judge, who recently sought political asylum in Belarus and had access to sensitive information, was involved in espionage.
