UK: Brexit Brings Death Upon A Polish Man

The murder of a Polish man in Essex and the suspected rise in hate crime following the Brexit vote have been condemned by European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker.

Mr Juncker defended the free movement of European Union citizens – seen as a key factor in the vote to leave – as he denounced the killing of Arkadiusz Jozwik in Harlow last month.

Police are treating the attack as a possible hate crime and six teenagers, aged 15 and 16, have been arrested and released on bail.

Poles have been victims in a series of incidents since the UK voted to leave the EU in June, including the assault of two Polish men within hours of a vigil following Mr Jozwik’s death.

Last week a Polish man was attacked and beaten by a group of up to 20 teenagers in a suspected racially-aggravated assault in Leeds.

Amid the violence, Theresa May called the Polish prime minister Beata Szydlo to express her “deep regret” and to stress “hate crime has no place in UK society”.

Now Mr Juncker has intervened.

He added: “The free movement of workers is as much a common European value as our fight against discrimination and racism.”

Meanwhile, Mr Juncker suggested that Britain cannot be a member of the European single market and regain full control over immigration from the continent.

He said the UK cannot expect “a la carte” access to the free trade zone once Brexit is delivered.

European leaders see the free movement of EU citizens as a condition of single market membership.

The issue has become central to the Brexit debate and has caused friction within the Government as ministers weigh up how to maintain the benefits of the trading bloc while regaining full control over immigration.

The Prime Minister slapped down Brexit Secretary David Davis for saying it was “very improbable” that the UK could be in the single market and also control its borders.

Mr Juncker warned Britain: “There can be no a la carte access to the single market.”

He also called on the Government to trigger Article 50 – the formal process for leaving the EU – as soon as possible.

“We would be happy if the request for Brexit could happen as quickly as possible so that we could take the specific steps which need to happen,” he said.
