Let us remind you, to an accident at the sorting plant at Zarzecze Street in Żerań occurred in January 2023. The man fell into a machine that shreds garbage. He died on the spot.

According to the then spokeswoman of the Warsaw-Praga District Prosecutor's Office, prosecutor Katarzyna Skrzeczkowska, preliminary investigation findings showed that the garbage shredding machine was jammed. – The 27-year-old foreman tried to unlock it manually and unfortunately it moved, she said.

She added that the prosecutor's office had initiated an investigation into the accident at work under Article 220 of the Penal Code. This article says that “Whoever, being responsible for occupational health and safety, fails to fulfill the resulting obligation and thus exposes the employee to a direct danger of loss of life or serious damage to health, shall be subject to the penalty of imprisonment for up to three years.“.

The investigation was also conducted regarding Article 155 of the Penal Code, i.e unintentionally causing the death of a person, punishable by three months to five years in prison.

Now prosecutor Woliński informs that the indictment includes both of the above charges against the suspect.
