A firefighter from Łódź has been ordered to pay 2000 PLN fine for his verbal racist attack against a Palestinian student earlier this year. The attack took place in a shop on Łódź’s main street, ul. Piotrkowska.
The 31-year old firefighter assaulted the 23-year old Palestinian verbally, insulting his nationality and religious affiliation, whilst in a shop on the city’s main street. The attack was captured on video and went viral on social media.
The firefighter has since apologized to the student, saying that his behaviour was the result of alcohol consumption. The man was found guilty and fined 2000 PLN to be paid to an aid fund for the disadvantaged along with 1 year probation sentence.
