There are no objections here, says Waldemar Łubniewski, spokesman for the Sosnowiec prosecutor’s office.

The murder of a deacon
Seven witnesses were questioned in the case of the deacon’s murder. Łubniewski confirms that some of them were also interviewed during the investigation into the tragedy on the tracks. As Łubniewski says, investigators learned the contents of some of the 26-year-old’s electronic equipment, but they have not yet managed to decode the laptop.
The investigation has been extended until December 8, but will probably last longer. A dozen or so people were interviewed.
