Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has condemned a suspected racist attack on a 14-year-old girl in Warsaw, saying: “There is no place for racism in Poland.
“The attack on a girl because of the colour of her skin deserves the strongest condemnation. We will do everything to make Poland safe for everyone,” Morawiecki wrote on Twitter.
A girl of Turkish descent was attacked in Warsaw on Thursday. Media reported that the assailant shouted: “Poland for Poles.”
Interior Minister Mariusz Błaszczak called the assault “a scandalous situation”.
Błaszczak said he had ordered Poland’s police chief to personally oversee a probe into the incident.
The girl is not believed to have been seriously injured.
