Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Andrzej Szejna emphasized that the Polish side, including the Polish prosecutor's office, has no legal title or grounds to participate in the proceedings regarding this murder. – It was because the man was not a Polish citizen that his parents renounced their Polish citizenship in the 1980s – he explained.
