This request, reference HQ/PA/1675/14, was received on Thursday 12 June 2014, 11:28am.
1) Numbers of POLISH VICTIMS of “Hate Crime” for each year (including numbers so far for the current year) since 2004. If this is not available then please provide the information for years that are available and ideally going back to 2008. Otherwise, please provide the information of POLISH victims of Hate Crime for the years you have available. 2) Total number of Hate Crimes for the same period. 3) Breakdown (Granularity) of Hate Crimes by Ethnicity (Race/Origin) for the same period. General categories (as opposed to Nationality) would be acceptable (ie. Asian, Black, Chinese, East European etc..) 4) As 1-3 above but for any “NON-CRIME INCIDENTS”. 5) Numbers of HATE CRIME prosecutions for the above periods (preferably by victim ethnicity). Clarified as follows: a) Numbers requested are for EACH year, (ie. not just a total for all the years). If possible, starting at 2008 (or 2004 if easily extractable). b) Item 4 should have read “Non-Crime HATE Incidents”. I am using ACPO definition: “A non-crime hate incident is defined as: any non-crime incident which is perceived by the victim, or any other person, to be motivated (wholly or partially) by a hostility or prejudice.“ c) Prosecutions (by which I meant those charged or cautioned) of perpetrators for HATE crime against Polish VICTIMS and, if possible, total prosecutions for hate crimes.
