Artur Mrozowski was on the train home from work. Police officers entered his carriage, responding to some disruptive behavior from football hooligans.
Mr Mrozowski was peaceful, calm and sober; he was not with the football supporters. Nevertheless, a police officer repeatedly beat him in the face with a truncheon, before he was laid out on the platform. The attack knocked out three of Mr Mrozowski’s teeth and cut open his face. He spent the night in hospital, suffering from nausea.
The police then pressed charges against Mr Mrozowski , falsely claiming that he had been one of the violent hooligans. The Polish courts acquitted him, because he had been sober and peaceful all along.
An investigation found that the police officers had done nothing wrong.
