Sgt. Bilko lives
In the Polish Air Force
WARSAW (Reuters) - Poland's anti-corruption police have detained an air force commander for allowing private companies to grow crops at an airbase, PAP news agency said on Sunday. He could face 10 years in prison.Even a base commander has to report to superiors. Other heads in the Polish Air Force may roll because of Colonel's Eygeniusz's entrepreneurialism.
"Since at least 2000, airbase commander Col. Eygeniusz G. had allowed private firms to raise crops free of charge on nearly 100 hectares (250 acres) of airbase land," the Central Anti-Corruption Agency (CAA) said in a communique.
The airbase is at Malbork in northern Poland.
The CAA, set up last year to spearhead the conservative government's across-the-board war on corruption, did not rule out additional arrests connected with fuel abuses at the airbase, the communique said.
