Kijowska: the conversation with the spokesman has already deprived me of all illusions
The author of the material, TVN “Facts” reporter Renata Kijowska on Thursday on TVN24 spoke, among other things, about the behavior of the police in this case, after the broadcast of the material. The journalist admitted that she was “amazed” by the reaction of uniformed officers.
– Yesterday, going to listen to what the spokesman of the Krakow police had to say, I expected some kind of apology, maybe not effusive, but still some admission, even a security one, that “we went too far in this intervention “. Nothing of the sort happened, she said.
As she continued, the first reaction in the form of a “disgusting” police statement in this case was “clearly an attempt to discredit our heroine.” – In the first sentence, colloquially speaking, the police tried to smear Joanna, to put in a very unbelievable light that she was an untrustworthy person. It seems to me a very ugly trick – she assessed referring to this way statements by the Krakow police in this case.
Later in the conversation, Renata Kijowska referred to the translations from the website spokesman of the KMP in Krakow, Deputy Commissioner Piotr Szpiecha.
– Later, the very conversation with the spokesman deprived me of any illusions that there would be any room for reflection, for decent behavior. It was evident from this conversation that there was no sense of shame, that they were not going there, they were not in this hospital to help Mrs. Joanna, which they allegedly indicated at the first moment, but to obtain evidence for something the journalist added.
