RMF FM: The Prosecution will investigate the behavior of police officers during the illegal march on November 11
The controversy regarding the activities of the police must now be investigated by the prosecutor’s office. As established by the RMF FM radio, upon request from the police themselves, who have provided the relevant documentation, investigators must make the so-called legal and criminal assessment of the conduct of officers. It depends on the judgment of the prosecutors whether an investigation into the violation of powers against the police is opened.
Whether or not an investigation into the violation of uniformed powers is launched depends on the institution’s judgment.
At the same time, there is internal control at the Warsaw Police Headquarters itself. According to radio findings, the police have a problem identifying the officers wearing helmets who participated in securing the march. “This is because the members of the unit who were sent there do not admit to anything” – informs RMF FM.
