Gilewski was invited by FIFA to participate in an official series of tests. An important step on the way to joining the list of referees for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, but:

In december 2008 he was taken in custody by the Central Anticorruption Bureau (CBA), apparently a unit they are in need of in Poland.
There were 7 allegations against Grzegorz G, including setting meetings with a known criminal, gaining EUR 125.000. and - most serious - participation in an organized criminal group led by a certain Ryszard F, aka Barber, the alleged organizer of the entire process. Gilewski and Ryszard F are known to have clled each other often. Gilewsky partially admitted guilt and stated he was sure he will be going back to refereeing and will stay on the list for the world championships in South Africa.
An investigation on corruption in Polish football has been taking place from May 2005 to this date, the prosecutor has set allegations against approximately 180 people: sports activists, referees, observers, including two members of the Board.

While normally he seems to go easy on the cards, in the two matches he was in charge of during the Under 21 tournament in Germany 2004, Gilewski booked 20 players.
