Macierewicz Investigates

Questioning Smolensk

Questioning Smolensk

“I am certainly not mistaken; what we are dealing with here is a crime,” said PiS MP and Jarosław Kaczyński confidante Antoni Macierewicz, discussing the Smolensk plane crash. “Those people died because the plane exploded in the air. I believe that it involved the actions of third parties,” stressed the deputy leader of Law and Justice (PiS). At the same time, he did not indicate the persons who in his opinion are responsible. “At this stage of the proceedings of the parliamentary team, we cannot indicate those responsible. However, everything implies that culpability lies on the Russian side.” Antoni Macierewicz emphasises that the details of the catastrophe are still unknown, which can be blamed on “the prosecutor’s office and the governing bodies of the state.” “Unfortunately they are only blocking this investigation. Hence, there is a necessity to introduce a special Smolensk Act,” notes the deputy PiS head.

Poland At Risk?

April 1, 2014
What is He Planning?

What is Putin Planning?

The Polish Minister of Interior Bartłomiej Sienkiewicz recently said that “There is no threat to Poland from Putin, but the conflict could reach us. The situation is a whole new chapter in modern politics.” He added, “the Polish government must take into account all eventualities, including war. The Prime Minister is not idly bandying around the word ‘war’, but is calling a spade a spade.” Sienkiewicz was commenting on Donald Tusk’s speech in which he stated that nobody knows if children will go to school on September 2014. Since 1945 no country has altered the borders of another country with aggression. This opens up a whole new era in the history of Europe, where anything is possible. Sienkiewicz said, “We have to focus on this issue because Poland has experienced too many traumas associated with war. There are no indications of a direct threat to Poland resulting from Putin’s aggression but it is hard to predict the developments over the next six months. Who knows, the conflict could reach our borders.” According to the Minister of Interior, an open Russian-Ukrainian conflict cannot be excluded.

Tragedy

Tragedy

A three-year-old child died in the children’s hospital in Olsztyn on Sunday. The parents of the child have filed a notice informing the public prosecutor of an offence being committed by the hospital staff, who could well be found guilty of negligence, according to Radio ZET. “The illness seemed to spread extremely quickly and this could be down to a medical error,” said Arkadiusz Szwedowski of the Olsztyn District Public Prosecutor’s Office. The parents had objections to the way their child was being treated as well as the diagnosis of the illness. An autopsy is planned soon. This is yet another death of a child in hospital in recent months. At the beginning of February, a three-year girl died in the Regional Specialised Hospital in Częstochowa. Also, a pair of twins died in January, following complications during childbirth in a hospital in Włocławek.

Warsaw Murder

Warsaw Murder

Suspected murderer Jerzy B. has been remanded in custody for three months. A court in Warsaw ruled on the arrest of the 52-year-old man, suspected of committing two brutal murders in Warsaw. The man pleaded not guilty, however, he faces a life-term in jail. The two murders were committed in February and August 2013. Warsaw police spokesman Mariusz Mrożek told TVN24 that one murder was committed in the Wilanów district of Warsaw, the other in Ursynów. The victims were a 69-year man and 63-year-old woman who wanted to sell and rent their homes. Their bodies were found there. Przemysław Nowak, spokesman of the public prosecutor’s office, told TVN24 that Jerzy B. is a resident of Warsaw. “There are some doubts over why he did it. In the case of the first murder there is evidence that robbery was the motive but the reason for the second murder is not clear,” said Nowak. “His explanation is contrary to the evidence we have gathered,” he added, “At the time of his arrest, mobile phones were found in the suspect’s apartment and car, which he had used to call the victims and arrange to view their houses.”

Satan On the Loose

On The Rampage

On The Rampage

If you see him call the police, he is a ruthless killer and he is still on the loose and for all you know he might be living near you. 35-year-old Piotr Szymianiak, nicknamed Kujawa, murdered 32-year-old Tomasz Barcia when he plunged a knife into his heart a few minutes after midnight in Sochaczew. The killer is still hiding from the police. The stocky, well-built Szymianiak has trademark scars on his face. He has a shaved head and is almost two metres high. He has a tattoo of a demon an his back, the Grim Reaper on his stomach, and a triangle over his navel. “We left a party and were going to the park to let off some fireworks when a group of men approached us along with Szymaniak. He wanted to start a fight but we got away. Kujawa then went home and returned with a knife and murdured Tomek. We didn’t have time to react, nobody believed he might actually try to kill one of us,” said the shocked brother of Tomasz.

Tragic End

Search Ends

Search Ends

The search for a 41-year-old resident of Katowice has come to an end. The local police found the body of the man on Monday evening in a forest in Romanowo near Częstochowa. The cause of death and reason why the man was so far from his home are as yet unknown. “The body of the man revealed stab wounds and cut marks around the wrists, chest and neck. At the moment, it is impossible to unequivocally determine the cause of death,” said Tomasz Ozimek from the District Prosecutor’s Office in Częstochowa. For the sake of the investigation, the prosecutor is not willing to reveal any more details. It is still unclear whether the prosecutor has excluded the participation of third parties in the man’s death, and whether police officers found any murder weapon at the scene of the crime. What has been confirmed, however, is that this is the body of the Katowice man who went missing over four weeks ago.

Changes in Police

March 8, 2014
Shape of Things to Come

Shape of Things to Come

The Polish government has passed a draft amendment to the Police Act and some other acts which were proposed by the Minister of Interior. The draft amendment hopes to create a new, separate central unit within the police force, the Central Police Bureau of Investigation (CBŚP). The head of the CBŚP will be directly supervised by the Chief Constable. “We will broaden the autonomy and increase the efficiency of the current Central Bureau of Investigation (CBŚ). We have solved many of the dilemmas with which we have been dealing for years,” said Prime Minister Donald Tusk at a recent press conference. It seems that the head of the CBŚP would have both operational and reconnaissance powers. These are similar to that of the Chief Constable and provincial police commanders. One of the vital changes in this act is the visible clarification that one of the main tasks of the police is fighting terrorism. This will be implemented through the use of special police cells and units which deal with anti-terrorism in Poland. The police have the most wide-ranging and specialised skills to fight terrorism, deal with explosives, make high-risk arrests, and support VIP security.
