At­tacked man faces long wait for physio treat­ment

Bray People - - Bray People -

GAR­DAÍ IN Bray are con­tin­u­ing to in­ves­ti­gate a bru­tal at­tack against a Pol­ish worker as he walked home late at night on the Green­park Road last July. The vic­tim of the vi­cious as­sault now fears he may have to re­turn to Poland af­ter dis­cov­er­ing he could face a twom­onth wait for phys­io­ther­apy.

Krzysztof Zi­etkiewicz has been re­leased from hospi­tal and is walk­ing again but he and his fam­ily worry that the wait for ther­apy is too long and his in­juries will not heal prop­erly.

Krys was set upon by an at­tacker on the walk home. There were up to 40 heavy blows rained upon him and he sus­tained mul­ti­ple frac­tures to his arms and legs.

His wife Mariya spent three weeks here vis­it­ing the in­jured man af­ter se­cur­ing a visa but has now re­turned to Poland.

Krys, who is liv­ing in Bray at the mo­ment, will be on his own when his brother Jarek goes to Swe­den.

The broth­ers are con­cerned about how they will meet the mount­ing hospi­tal bill and Jarek has al­ready sought com­pen­sa­tion for Krys from the Crim­i­nal In­juries Tri­bunal.
