Forensics Institute under fire for ill treating human bodies

A special commission will investigate the conditions in which bodies are kept at the Forensics Institute in Warsaw.

A scandal erupted after a man who had come for the body of his son, killed in a traffic accident, said that he saw there bodies heaped on one another, and dumped in containers, "like dogs".

The management of the Institute have denied the allegations. Yesterday, however, the rector of the Medical University formed a special commission in response to the scandal.
