As we have informed before, a high school student Daniel Cz. was beaten up in Vilnius for nationality reasons as the witnesses of the incident and the boy’s parents believe. The Polish television channel TVN made a program about what happened, but unfortunately Lithuania has ignored the problem completely.
The Polish programme Uwaga! TVN: “Beaten up for speaking Polish”
European Foundation of Human Rights provides the victim’s family with free legal advice. At the beginning of February, Daniel was again admitted to hospital. He might need to have his jaw operated on because of complications resulting from the assault.
Once again, we ask all witnesses of the incident to urgently contact the Foundation. The person who gives any information that will help to find those guilty of the crime will receive a reward of 500 Lt.
