We know the written justification for the shocking judgment

– A strange decision! The drag queen simulated an archbishop’s throat slit. Jędraszewski. Now he has been… acquitted by the Pozna court
There is an appeal from the prosecutor’s office
A spokeswoman for the Warsaw District Prosecutor’s Office, Aleksandra Skrzyniarz, informed the portal wPolityce.pl that the Warsaw District Prosecutor’s Office filed an appeal with the Pozna District Court on July 29, 2022, against the judgment of the Poznań Stare Miasto District Court of June 24, 2022, in which the accused Marek M. he was acquitted of the alleged act – publicly inciting the murder of the Archbishop of the Roman Catholic Church, as well as hatred for religious differences and insulting a pastor and other people of this faith for their religious beliefs.
She recalled that the event took place on August 10, 2019 in Pozna.
At a gala touted as the “Gay Choice of the Year,” Marek M., disguised as a drag queen, danced onstage with an inflatable doll that symbolized the pastor whose photo was affixed to it. Using the words of the song being played, “Lola, I killed him,” he simulated slitting the Archbishop’s throat with a knife, and for greater effect, spilled artificial blood, simulating a murder.
The prosecutor Aleksandra Skrzyniarz explained.
The prosecution questioned the verdict, pointing out that the court adjudicating in the case made incorrect factual findings, expressed in a false one, devoid of objectivity and contrary to the principles of logical reasoning and life experience that the evidence collected is does not indicate that the accused Marek M. committed a crime, and his behavior was merely an expression of permitted artistic creativity and freedom of expression
– she explained.
Planned kill simulation
She stressed that in the opinion of the prosecutor’s office, the correct assessment of the collected material – in accordance with the principles of knowledge, logical reasoning and life experience – “leads to different conclusions in this regard and should lead to the conviction of the accused.”
In the opinion of the Public Prosecutor, the analysis of the motivation of the judgment and the arguments contained therein evokes the reflection that the court focused on the circumstances that led to the acquittal of the suspect, and thus aimed for execution. of the accused’s previously assumed position. lack of perpetration and guilt of the accused Marek M.
– she said.
Essentially, the court based its judgment solely on the defendant’s account, who indicated that he did not intend to incite hatred, and his conduct was merely a reaction to the archbishop’s words. on August 1, 2019 during the Holy Mass on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the outbreak of the Warsaw Uprising. According to the prosecutor’s office, the defendant’s trial report was only an expression of the line of defense he had followed, which the court had wrongly assumed to be true.
– she said.
The analysis of the photos immortalizing the suspect’s act leads to the conclusion that the people gathered in the club at the time did not witness a peaceful, non-aggressive artistic performance aimed at expressing their views, but a planned simulation of the murder of a specific representative of the Roman Catholic Church, caused by reluctance to comment on his earlier statement. It is clear from the suspect’s posture and facial expressions that during the incident he did not express any pain or sadness related to the preacher’s speech, but expressed negative emotions such as anger or hatred
– she remarked.
Incitement to commit a crime
She also pointed out that, according to the prosecutor’s office, there is no doubt that the form of Marek M.’s stage message was a call to commit the murder of Archbishop Jędraszewski.
This perception of the performance is not only supported by the props used for this in the form of scissors and artificial blood, but above all by the text of the song that was played during the staging. On the other hand, the way the image of a preacher is used proves by performing a dance dressed as a drag queen with an inflatable naked doll with an image of the victim’s face pasted on the head along with the transferred content , that the Archbishop was insulted because of his religious beliefs.
– point them out.
As a result, acceptance of the decision taken by the court may be perceived by other members of society as a kind of consent to aggressive behavior, which should not take place in a democratic constitutional state.
– she said. She added that the Warsaw District Prosecutor’s Office wanted the verdict overturned and the case referred to the court for reconsideration.
