A group of nationalist activists in Poland is asking the state to examine the filing of a lawsuit against the President of the State of Israel, Reuven Rivlin.

The activists seek to sue Rivlin over comments he made during the annual March of the Living on Holocaust Remembrance Day last week.

During his address, Rivlin noted that many Poles were complicit in the murder of their Jewish neighbors during their Holocaust.

Christophe Bosk, one of the leaders of the group, noted that the request was officially submitted to the Polish court in accordance with the controversial bill recently passed by the Polish Parliament. The bill declares it illegal to suggest Poland bore any responsibility for crimes against humanity committed by Nazi Germany on its soil during World War II. Violators could face up to three years in prison.
