    Deputy Minister of Justice advocates for capital punishment in cases of heinous crimes

    In an interview with the Polish Press Agency, Marcin Romanowski, the Deputy Minister of Justice, addressed the tragic passing of an eight-year-old boy who suffered severe burn injuries at the hands of his stepfather. The child was hospitalized for several weeks and underwent an induced coma in a desperate attempt to save his life, but sadly passed away on Monday.

    “Reinstating the death penalty for the most vicious crimes is essential and fair, and any other punishment would be inadequate,” Romanowski said. “Not only does the death penalty serve as a powerful deterrent, but it is also a just form of punishment.”

    When asked about the EU’s prohibition on the death penalty, Romanowski referred to it as “nonsensical” and expressed his support for “discontinuing the system.”

    On September 1, 1998, Poland formally eliminated the death penalty from its legal system. The country went on to ratify a protocol to the European Convention on Human Rights in 2013, which prohibited the use of capital punishment.
