Shocking report on the harassment of basketball players WP Sportowe Fakty posted on Thursday. Journalists described the anonymous accounts of dozens of basketball players who accused coach Roman Szczec of mental abuse and harassment.
“Cutting the veins must hurt so much, so I was thinking about jumping off the bridge or taking pills. I wanted to sleep and not wake up. No one treated me like him”; “It ruined my childhood. At school I was taking sedative pills, without them I could not sleep. I still have nightmares”; “I treat depression and PTSD. I am under the care of a psychiatrist, I take medication” – These are just a few of their accounts.
It didn’t take long for the authorities to react. Przemysław Czarnek, Minister of Education and Science, commissioned Mazovia’s educational supervisor to immediately examine the situation and conduct an inspection at the school in Łomianki. The case will also be handled by the National Prosecutor’s Office.
