Paedophile murderer at large, under police protection
February 12, 2014
Mariusz T (surname withheld under Polish law), a convicted paedophile Tuesday left prison where he had spent the last 25 for raping and murdering four boys, although medical documents obtained by the media show that there is a risk that he will re-offend.
Although Minister of Justice Marek Biernacki filed an application to the court on Monday, calling for Mariusz T. to remain in captivity, the district court in southeastern city of Rzeszow, due to rule whether Mariusz T. has a mental disorder and thus must be isolated, postponed a hearing until March 3.
Mariusz T was initially sentenced to death in September 1989, yet three months later, with the collapse of the communist regime in Poland the Polish lawmakers declared an amnesty for all those facing the death penalty. All death sentences were commuted to 25-year prison sentences.
In 1988, Mariusz T. lured four boys to his flat in Piotrkow Trybunalski, central Poland, where he raped and murdered them.
The head of police Marek Działoszyński said that in the face of vengeance threats Mariusz T. would be placed under police protection. He added that this is a measure to assure safety of the local community where Mariusz T. would continue to live.
Meanwhile, child pornography allegedly has been found in Mariusz T.'s cell and presented to local prosecutors.
