There is a court decision in the case of one of the policemen involved in a police car accident in Dawidy Bankowe near Warsaw. The proceedings were conditionally discontinued.
The accident occurred earlier this year. Police officers from Pruszków near Warsaw received a report about a fire. After the intervention, they took two teenagers to the police car. The girls were in the group that reported the fire.
The police drove away with the teenagers, and a moment later, in Dawidy Bankowe near Warsaw, the policeman driving the police car lost control of the car and hit a tree. The girls were injured. Both suffered contusions, and one of them had a broken nose.
Both policemen were charged and their fate was to be decided by the court.
One case was conditionally discontinued…
– The District Court in Pruszków conditionally discontinued criminal proceedings for a three-year probation period against police officer Jakub S., accused of an act under Article 231, paragraph 1 of the Penal Code, which consisted in failing to fulfill the duties of a police officer by failing to provide assistance to women injured in an accident. The man was also obliged to apologize to the victims and pay them compensation, said Szymon Banna, spokesman for the District Prosecutor’s Office in Warsaw.
…the second one is still not over
An indictment was filed against the second police officer involved in the incident, Janusz R., in July 2023, regarding an act of exceeding official powers and unintentionally causing a road accident in which the injured women were injured.
– The indictment also included an accusation of an offense committed by Janusz R., which consisted in failing to fulfill the duties of a police officer by failing to provide assistance to women injured in an accident. These acts are punishable by up to three years in prison, Banna explained.
