Poland has called in a German diplomat for talks following the rape of a Polish teenager in Munich, allegedly by a perpetrator from Afghanistan. Prime Minister Morawiecki has declared that the crime is a “consequence of the open border policy”.

He also announced that Poland will request that Polish prosecutors be involved in the investigation. However, opposition figures and some commentators accused him of politicising the tragedy amid campaigning for October’s elections.

The case concerns a Polish language school student who was raped and robbed at a subway station in Munich on Saturday. The man was under the influence of alcohol and probably fell asleep on a bench, where the perpetrator took advantage of him, reported German newspaper Bild.
