    The investigation against Magdalena K. was conducted by the Małopolska Regional Division of the Department for Organized Crime and Corruption of the National Prosecutor’s Office in Cracow.  The woman will answer before the District Court in Cracow for, among others, managing an organized criminal group of pseudo football fans of the Cracovia sports club.  The prosecutor also accused K. of drug smuggling and trafficking, obstruction of criminal proceedings, giving false testimony and imposing the same on others, money laundering by, among others, acquiring a luxury apartment and a Mercedes 200 CLA car.  Magdalena K. was also charged with the misappropriation of a BMW M 6 car.  If the court finds Magdalena K. guilty, she may face up to 15 years in prison.


    On the defendant’s bench, next to K., will sit her partner, Mariusz Z. The man has already been accused of leading this criminal group, drug crimes and money laundering.  However, in a recently concluded investigation, the prosecution has charged him with entirely new acts.


    “Currently, the indictment covers the previous period of activity of a criminal group led, among others, by Mariusz Z. and his brother Adrian, as well as other revealed crimes, such as running a marijuana plantation, extorting car insurance based on fictitious road collisions and feint thefts of luxury cars such as Mercedes 600 SL, Audi A8, Audi RS 7, BMW 4, demanding a ransom for the return of a stolen Audi A5,” – reported the Press Department of PK.


     Mariusz Z. is also accused of having “arranged” a postponement of his prison sentence by sending “a person with a serious spinal condition” for a medical examination of “, posing as him.


    “Basing on the fabricated results, the defendant obtained further medical records.  The forensic expert concluded that serving a prison sentence could cause health risks to the prisoner.
