Attorneys insist on interrogation of the mastermind in the case of arson at the KMKSZ center in Uzhgorod

On March 4, a trial of Polish attackers on the KMKSZ Center in Uzhgorod took place in the Polish city of Krakow. This was reported by the Yevropeiska Pavda with reference to the "Polish Radio".

Three Poles - leader of the group Michal P., 21-year-old Adrian M., and 25-year-old Tomasz Sz., - are accused of a terrorist act, namely drawing fascist symbols on and setting fire to a building. Mical P. is also accused of financing and inciting to these actions.

The prosecutor's office believes that that was "a deliberate public incitement to ethnic hostility between Ukrainians and Hungarians". If proven guilty, Michal P. faces up to 12 years imprisonment, Adrian M. and Tomasz Sz. - up to 10 years.

Adrian M. and Tomasz Sz. admitted their involvement in the act, but did not agree with the legal classification of it as a terrorist act.

The attorney of one of the defendants asked to interrogate German journalist Manuel Ochsenreiter, who, according to Michal P., was the mastermind behind the crime.
