“We would like to interview the victims. It’s hard to say where and when that would be possible. We will try to make it as easy for them as possible,” said prosecutor Michał Dziekański.
He added that prosecutors want to interview friends and family of the Poles who were assaulted “to determine whether or not they have information on the matter.”
Two Poles were attacked on 4 September in Harlow, the same town where a Polish national died after an assault on 28 August.
British police are investigating the incident as a potential hate crime.
According to British police, the two Poles were beaten up outside a popular pub.
Preliminary investigations indicated that four or five men were involved in assaulting the two Poles, who were hospitalised with broken bones and bruises.
Both the men were discharged after a few hours.
The 4 September attack came just hours after over 700 people gathered in the centre of Harlow to pay tribute to the Polish man who died after being assaulted.
