Police in Poland has arrested a convicted murderer who had been on the run for 20 years because he was not wearing a face mask.
Warsaw police said they had detained the 45-year-old fugitive at a shop northeast of the capital. “The man was stopped by police in the Bielany district because he did not have a mask,” sub-inspector Elwira Kozlowska told AFP on Tuesday.
The man has now been transported to a prison where he is due to serve a 25-year sentence for murder. No further details were provided.
Facemasks are mandatory in all shops in Poland under the latest anti-coronavirus restrictions.
