The spokesperson of the minister-coordinator for the secret services confirmed that Nurmagomed M.(name withheld under Polish privacy laws) was detained in Poland.

“He was apprehended on January 30, but due to the safety reasons we did not report about the activities of ABW,” Mr Żaryn told the Polish Press Agency. He added that over this period, a court decided that the suspect will be deported.
