Influential speech of the mother of the late Kamil in court
However, this speech of Kamil, the mother of the deceased, was the most impressive of the day. The woman took the floor after the closing talks and read the words written earlier. In her short speech, the nervous and weeping Mrs. Elbieta said that she was dearest to her son after his death.
-Parents, brothers and sisters, it is difficult to express in words what we live as a family. Although more than 1.5 years have passed since this tragedy, we still do not understand how it happened. I do not understand how it was possible to keep such dogs with young children? As long as they had attacked before. But it seems that the desire to make money by selling puppies has overshadowed the voices of homeowners. The accused apologizes to me in court, feels remorse, and in the city challenges me with obscene words as if it suits me. He still feels important in this city and goes unpunished. I am currently receiving regular treatment at a psychotherapist, taking sedatives to be able to function. Although the defendant’s lawyer dared to say that it was normal for me to need psychiatric treatment after losing my son, I still have children to raise. This statement is inappropriate. By what right have I been so humiliated by this claim? How can a lawyer know what I am doing? And the accusation that my child was guilty of his own death … because he didn’t attack the dog with scissors. The file clearly states that these scissors were not found in my child. They were at work, but after all this, how could my son put them in place? As Kamilek’s mother, I ask the court to impose the maximum penalty for this act, ie 5 years in prison. Finally, I would like to say, sir, that I will not rest and will fight to the end so that the accused will receive a deserved punishment for this act. I have to dedicate my life to this work – I will not let it go. I will not forgive. This is not something that can be taken back or repaired. My child’s whole life was ahead. There were plans, dreams and, most of all, health and love. Such things are unforgivable, he said.
Mariusz S. did not attend the hearing in the District Court. In front of the Przemyśl District Court, the animal owner did not want to answer any questions other than the court and his lawyer. He pleaded not guilty and claimed that he lived only on benefits and part-time work, and that the dogs were always well-groomed.
