5 News cuts his throat in the dock It is not clear where and how

Pawlowski obtained the weapon. The court complex has airport- style security scanners and security guards in place at both entrances. The man had admitted sexual

assault by way of grabbing and kissing a shop assistant. A spokesman for the Welsh

Ambulance Service told The Pembrokeshire Herald: “We were called at 10.20am to reports of an incident at Haverfordwest Magistrates Court. “Two crews in emergency

ambulances and ambulance officer are currently at the scene.” An HM Courts and Tribunal

spokesman told The Herald: “A man was taken to hospital following an incident at Haverfordwest Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday 11 January. There were no injuries to staff or other court users. “There is an ongoing police

investigation so it would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage.” Preseli Pembrokeshire MP

Stephen Crabb tweeted his concern at the events, saying: “Disturbing news. No one should be in a position to harm themselves or others in a court room.” Mid and West AM Simon

Thomas said he has written to the Ministry of Justice asking what

steps the Westminster government is taking to improve safety. Mr Thomas said in a press

release to The Herald: “I’ve written to the Ministry of Justice regarding the disturbing incident today at Haverfordwest Magistrates Court in Pembrokeshire. “I find it astonishing that a

defendant at a secure court could get access to a potentially lethal weapon. This severe lapse in security could have led to a loss of his life and endangered others in the court. “There are clear lessons here also for the prevention of terrorism. “I’ve demanded that steps are

taken in response to this incident to ensure safety at Haverfordwest and other courts in Wales. I’ve asked what security improvements will be made.” A spokesperson for Dyfed-

Powys Police said told The Herald: “Officers attended and found an injured man at the scene, who was receiving treatment by paramedics. “He has been conveyed

to Morriston Hospital by air ambulance. The extent of his injuries are unknown at this time. The court has been closed in order for inquiries to take place. “Police are not looking to speak

to anyone else in connection with this incident at this time.”

A window into a troubled mind? A REVIEW of Lukasz

Pawlowski’s Facebook page tells a tale of a troubled man. Many of the posts, written in Polish, ask for help, with friends offering suggestions. At one point earlier this month,

Pawlowski told a friend on his public profile page that ‘the medicine is not working’ and ‘he is struggling to cope’. One of the last videos that

Pawlowski posted on his page, just a few days after Christmas, was a film from video sharing website Vimeo showing the killing of a man by being shot in the head. The images, from Baton Rouge,

USA, in 1984 shows graphic content of the victim lying on the floor a pool of blood whilst a police officer attempts to stem the flow of blood from his neck. The shooter was never prosecuted

because he was the father of a young boy who had been molested by his karate teacher – the victim. In the USA this is called justifiable homicide. Just hours before going into the

magistrates’ court, Pawlowski posted the following on his Facebook page in

Polish: ‘Bądź zawsze sobą! Pojebanych też lubią’, roughly translated it means: ‘Always be yourself, messed up people are liked too’. Magda Lena, a Polish national,

has spent many years living in Pembrokeshire. She told The Herald: “I don’t think the services are a problem, I think that it’s the level of English.

It’s hard to talk deeply about your mental health when you can’t speak or understand the language as well as others. She added: “There are places around

UK with Polish-speaking doctors, but I think people just feel like too much of a burden to try sort this kind of help.”
