MP Małgorzata Tracz said that Barbara Nowacka had already received help. “Already under the care of the medical services,” she said.
In turn, the journalist of Radio ZET, Piotr Drabik, published on Twitter a video showing Barbara Nowacka assisted the deputy Michał Szczerba. The deputy explains to the officer that she was hit with gas in her eyes, even though she was showing a parliamentary ID card – at the height of her face – which she herself says in the video published by Michał Szczerba. The policeman who the MPs spoke to asked Nowacka if she needed medical help. He also reported that he himself was at the top of the route where officers were not using gas.
The victims also include Halo Radio reporter – added the station’s journalist.
