THE trial of three Polish men on charges of aggravated assault collapsed at Letterkenny Circuit Court after the alleged victim refused to give evidence against them, telling a judge: “I will sort this out myself when I get back.”Before the court in a trial before a jury were Przemeek Kieloch, 44A Glencar Park, Letterkenny, Arkadiusz Laskowski, 29 Whitethorn Grove, Letterkenny and Wojcieck Loiskowski, pictured, 60 Cnockard Park, Letterkenny.The prosecution alleged the men were part of a gang which burst into a house in the town in March 2012 and beat Jaroslav Lupinski. DPP lawyer Patricia McLaughlin, outlining the case to the jury, said the assault case was serious in that the victim had been the subject to an attack which involved him being hit with an iron bar as well as being repeatedly punched.But there was shock in court No 2 in Letterkenny when Mr Lupinski was asked to give evidence via video link from Poland where he is serving a prison sentence.He repeatedly told Ms McLaughlin that he was assaulted but that he would not be giving evidence against the men.His view – translated by an interpreter in the Letterkenny court room – was that he wanted to return to Ireland to give his evidence. He is due to be released in just six weeks.“Nothing was done in my case for two years and now suddenly everyone wants to do something,” complained the father of two.He told Ms McLaughlin: “You can throw this (the case) in the bin.”Judge Comerford told Mr Lupinski that under Irish law he had to answer questions put to him.But the alleged victim said: “I will sort this out myself when I get back (to Ireland).”The judge warned that Mr Lupinski had just committed a “very serious criminal offence”.“The Polish authorities should be contacted and told what has happened with this witness,” he said.However he agreed Mr Lupinski was not in contempt of court because he was appearing from a Polish court room.The judge asked the interpreter to tell the alleged victim that the prosecution had been brought and that he was obliged to cooperate.“I have no time for this sillyness – the court can put it into the bin,” replied Mr Lupinski.“That might be Irish law, but it’s not Polish law. I will just deal it with myself.”The three accused men sat in court watching the exchanges.Defence lawyers asked for the case to be thrown out, on the grounds they would be unable to cross-examine Mr Lupinski who was refusing to give evidence.Ms McLaughlin asked for an adjournment whilst she sought the opinion of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).When the case resumed she told the judge that the DPP had advised that a Nolle prosequi be entered in all three cases – effectively dropping the case against the three men.It’s understood Mr Lupinski is due back in Letterkenny in mid-June.ASSAULT TRIAL COLLAPSES AS WITNESS TELLS JUDGE: “I WILL SORT THIS OUT MYSELF” was last modified: April 30th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:assaultcase collapsedcourtJaroslav Lupinski.letterkennyPOLISH
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We talked about spraying Sunday but we did not because it got windy. We are starting this morning to get that going so we can plant beans at a decent time. The sunlight is giving the weeds a head start. There is some marestail getting started out there.It looks like there is some rain in the forecast but it doesn’t look like anything heavy. My attention is on the temperature. It looks like late this week there are temperatures in the 70s. We just haven’t been warm here.We have been lacking sunshine and heat. I think we are going to get that. If it gets fit here mid-week, I think we are going to go ahead and start planting if we don’t get that rain. I don’t see any toad strangler rains in the forecast yet. We are still a little what we call goobery. It is dry on top but underneath it is still like Play Dough.I think we’ll see a lot of burndown spray applications around here today but there won’t be planters rolling just yet. We prefer planting in May to begin with and if we get pushed into May by the weather that is probably a good thing. We have some heavier dirt here. Once the calendar says May 1, though, we hit it hard.Soil moisture is adequate. The tiles are still running a little. We don’t have anything near the droughty conditions in some parts of the country.In some black, worked ground, the soil temp three or four inches down is at 46 degrees this morning. This should be warming up the quickest and it is a little chilly yet. Cold and wet is not a good combination in our area. A little cold rain on top of that usually spells disaster.The tile plow is my tool that keeps me from doing something dumb with the planter. This time of year tile keeps me from looking at what the neighbors are doing.
