PythonM writes: On Friday at 6AM local time, the Polish government's Internal Security Agency (ABW) searched premises and confiscated laptop of 25-years old man because his website parodied Polish president Bronislaw Komorowski [source: http://translate.google.com/translate?js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&sl=pl&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.rp.pl%2Fartykul%2F661531_ABW_wkracza__bo_serwis_parodiowal_prezydenta.html ].

Will the ruling party (Civic Platform) close stadiums for Poles during Euro 2012 to silent anti-government criticism?
