WARSAW, March 1 (Xinhua) -- Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk has received the resignation of head of the Government Protection Bureau (BOR) General Marian Janicki, the interior ministry announced on Friday.
Opposition party Law and Justice (PiS), the second-largest party in the parliament, repeatedly called for the sacking of Janicki.
Members of the party accused him of negligence in protecting the late Polish President Lech Kaczynski and irregularities in the course of preparations for the flight which crashed near a military airfield in Smolensk, Russia on April 10, 2010, killing Kaczynski, his wife and numerous VIPs.
Krzysztof Klimek, Janicki's deputy, was appointed acting head of the bureau.
Janicki, 52, joined the BOR in 1988 and was appointed head of the bureau in 2007.
