Poland launches investigation after murder of Polish woman in Greece


Poland’s Minister of Justice Zbigniew Ziobro has ordered an investigation into the murder of a Polish woman in Greece on Sunday.

Anastazja Rubińska, a 27-year-old from the Polish city of Wrocław, went missing on June 12 on the Greek island of Kos where she worked in a hotel. Her disappearance was reported to police the next day by her boyfriend, who works in the same hotel.

Anastazja Rubińska was murdered in Greece.

Rubińska’s body was found, reportedly naked from the waist down, on Sunday around one kilometre from the home of a 32-year-old Bangladeshi man who had been arrested earlier on suspicion of being connected to Rubińska’s disappearance.

According to Ekathimerini, the man, who has so far been charged with kidnapping, is the main murder suspect and will be detained until he testifies.

In response, Polish Minister Ziobro has ordered Polish prosecutors to investigate the murder. They would immediately request evidence from the Greek authorities, he added.

A few hours later, Poland’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki also issued a statement and said his government will seek the extradition of the Bangladeshi murder suspect.

“The perpetrator must face very severe consequences,” the Prime Minister wrote on Twitter. “Therefore, we will ask Greece to extradite the suspect to stand before a Polish court and receive the highest possible sentence.”
