The Przemysl court decided to put under community control the 20 individuals, who in June 2016 hindered the peaceful march of Ukrainians in Przemysl, as Radio Poland informs.

“The Przemysl district court sentenced the accused for 4 to 10 months of community control, which implies claiming 20% from the salary or engaging in unpaid community service,” the message says.

This way, the accused who are employed will pay the 20% of their salaries. Unemployed individuals will engage in 30-hour a month unpaid community service work.

As it was reported earlier, in June 2016, in Przemysl, Poland, there was an attempt to interfere with the procession of Greek Catholics and Orthodox, who, after the requiem for Ukrainian heroes came out of the cathedral to the local military cemetery. Among the attackers, there were people in T-shirts of All-Polish Youth organization. They shouted abusive slogans against the marchers. 

Later on, Przemysl district prosecutor’s office pressed charges against 20 Poles, who attacked the peaceful march of Ukrainian Greek Catholics and Orthodox Christians.
