A second priest is to testify that he was asked by the husband to intervene to save the marriage. The court has refused a request that Szczecin archbishop Dzięga be called to give evidence.

The divorce case is to be heard in Szczecin Regional Court. The plaintiff is 38 year-old Zygmunt, from the Szczecin area, who has accused his 37 year-old wife Barbara of an affair with her parish priest, 35 year-old Stefan.

The wife has admitted adultery, but has declined to say with whom. She has made counter-accusations of ill-treatment and drunkenness against her husband.

The priest concerned has been accused in writing of sleeping with Barbara at the vicarage, as well as eloping with her on holidays and at weekends. In 2012, he was suddenly asked to change parish, with no explanation being given to parishioners.
