a hospital in critical condition he died earlier today from his injuries. poland is a country in shock. presidents of downs bring flowers and light candles to grief the city's mayor pavel a download bitch. despite hours of surgery and hundreds of polish blood donors coming to his aid in may or died from the stabbing rooms. many people in the city knew him personally. for me it's terrible leaders especially since we went to great school together just over there. i thought he would survive. because it'll be. just a month physically devastated and very sad because i saw the mayor very often. moments before the attack pavel adama vits was praising
10:03 pm
a fund raising effort for children in need. as the mayor looked out at thousands of people and men lunged at him with a knife. and the attacker then remained on stage shouting that he blamed the mayor's former party for wrongfully imprisoning him. then he was teko to the ground. with the twenty seven year old suspect is a convicted bank robber who had served more than five years in prison prosecutors are charging him with murder. civil movements have already called for marches against violence and hatred in several polish cities tonight but president under a duda and other political leaders decided not to organize a march to respect the wish of the adamah of its family. his idea but that it's only going to have citizens want to organize marches spontaneous marches police
10:04 pm
they can do it this is always an expression of solidarity but because of the family wants to maintain dignity what i want to the least politics in all of this we have decided that we will not organize any marches just so we just need to just post and post on the. news of r.d. . but with many residents asking how this could happen the murder of pavel adama vich is likely to inflame an already divided poland. disturbing story to talk about. polish good to have you on the show i thank you let's talk a little bit about possible i mean he. was politically significant beyond the borders of the dams because of the oh yes he was he was much more than just a mayor in. a dynasty it is a big it's one of the biggest cities in poland with big political significance but
10:05 pm
i would say popular dam of each pass turned into the face of this liberal poland that opposes the national conservative no one just has been ruling in poland for for the last three years. and he has ruled for more than twenty years he ruled the city with liberal views and justice party won that really march to take the city from the liberals we had last fall this local elections were conservatives were hoping to win but they didn't. which one and this victory in was really a big boost of confidence for polish liberal opposition and what do we know about the suspect and his motives well it's a twenty seven years old man with already big criminal record he has already been imprisoned he spent some years in prison for armed robbery secure up banks but
10:06 pm
you know it's. quite disturbing after stab mr them of each as we saw as we heard he stay on the stage he wanted to be seen he wanted to be heard and he claimed that this is his revenge for a wrong foolish imprisonment that he had before. he has her tease so he's now he's now in custody and will maybe fear something more about his motives. he had a personal axe to grind here maybe not a political one but as you were saying even the political scene in poland is very polarized right now so. how has the you know the death of the murder of a dam which has it been received. well all political parties have condemned what what happened and poland is really shocked there is quite young polish democracy
10:07 pm
hasn't seen things like that in the recent history so really the country is shocked everybody is asking to calm down to calm down not to make such. a political issue out of it but as you said the country is very much polarized so i guess this phase of coming down will not last more people quickly particularly in the media in poland had they been quick to assume that there was a political motive here in this stampede yes of course very much there is a very. big discussion going on on twitter some site opposing the government says this is the fault of the government of the government tunc the government's language into words the opposition about even the people supporting the opposition say ok let's calm down this is really not the best moment to say things like that.
