History and profileEdit

The paper ceased to exist on 7 December 2009 (last issue published on 4 December).[2] The official reason: outstanding liabilities towards cooperators and the Polish national Social Insurance Institution (ZUS). Its last editor-in-chief was Wiesław Dębski.

The circulation of Trybuna was 48,509 copies in January–February 2001.[1] Its 2009 circulation was 50,000 copies.[2]
