Concert hall is turned into courtroom for drug gang trial

The concert hall at Kielce in Poland is today the scene of an international drugs gang trial with 17 defendants on stage – rather, in the dock.

The gang is accused of operating in Spain, Holland and Poland. The concert hall was deemed to be the only suitable space to house so many defendants securely and at safe distance during the Covid pandemic.

In all, there will be 60 people in the hall, incuding lawyers, clerks and security.
