Poland: Concerns over large-scale prosecution of protesters
On Saturday, 10 June the police removed by force about hundred anti-government protesters in central Warsaw. They were held for two hours and were served fines for an interference with a lawful assembly. Amnesty International is concerned over the use of criminal and administrative law against protesters in Poland. It calls on the Polish authorities to ensure that people are able to take part in demonstrations as a means of expressing their views.
