Jan Tomaszewski and not only he have a good idea that one isn’t allowed to lead people which committed crimes to amnesty. In sport a corruption and a doping are the worst crimes. It is necessary to solve this case but also to set the date, from which clubs won’t be degraded, but put on financial punishments “- Drzewiecki summed up.
