Wentzl-Duda clash on Facebook

The co-owner of the building that houses the Main Square hotel and restaurant Wentzl took to Facebook to speak out against president Andrzej Duda. Duda met with US senators in the restaurant, after which the owner spoke out against the president’s government’s changes to the constitution and her alliance with KOD (the Committee for the Defense of Democracy). Wentlz has since distanced themselves from the event stating that the opinions of the commenter do not reflect their own. [TVN24]

    It would be helpful to know whether the “co-owner” has 0.1% ownership in the restaurant or 99%. It would also be helpful to know the background of this person. Finally, one might want to know what horrible obscenities that person and Duda exchanged on facebook – otherwise this does not amount to much of an article.
