Police investigations continue into the brutal assault of an actress who appeared in a Law and Justice TV campaign ad.

The actress was brutally assaulted in front of her house by a group of young men last Saturday.

Anna Cugier-Kotka, who first appeared in an advertisement for the Civic Platform party in 2007 turned up in the central role in an advert for the opposition Law and Justice, for the European parliamentary elections last Sunday.

The actress says that, earlier, after the ad was first aired, she received threatening text messages and emails. She has also accused the police of refusing to file her report after the mugging.
