The house of a Polish activist from the Coalition of Anti –
authoritarian Groups was raided by police yesterday evening. The
police started their visit on 28th April just before 10pm. There
were 4 police cars seen from the house, and some other 6–7 visible
further away. The house of the activist is situated outside of
Warsaw; there were 11 people in the house at the time of the visit.

The policemen entered the house without any warning, they came in
with weapons. They did not give any legal justification of their
visit, nor any of their names or identification numbers, which they
should do according to the Polish law. Although there were several
girls in the house, the policemen made personal searches of everyone
present there. The policemen were joking about "choosing the
prettier one" etc. One person was kicked several times by the
police, another was brutally thrown on the wall. Everything happend
according to a silly action movie scenario – the policemen were
shouting "fucking bastards" etc.

Handcuffs were put on everyone present in the flat. Than everyone
was led outside – and the search [of the flat] took place without
any witness – again illegally, because at least one inhabitant and
one witness should stay at the place [while it is being searched].
The other people coming to the flat from outside were not let in.
The car of some Bielorussian friends of the activist was searched too.

At least 4 person will file a lawsuit against the police tomorrow.
The police did not have any order from prosecutors to search the
house. One of the most known Polish lawyers, prof. Rzepliński, the
president of the Helsinki Foundation of Human Rights, came to the
place just after the police left.
