Old Bailey heard three Polish three men are accused of killing compatriot
A third Polish man accused of a murder in a disused office block in Stonebridge appeared at the Old Bailey today (Friday).
Andrzej Mikolajek, 55, is charged alongside Piotr Kulik, 29, and Krysztof Szafisz, 26, over the killing of fellow Pole Marcin Porczek.
Mr Porczek was found with head injuries in the derelict former Unisys building, off the north circular in December 14 last year.
It is understood all three men had been living rough in make-shift squats in the building.

They will now stand trial together on a date to be fixed.
The Common Serjeant of London Judge Brian Barker QC postponed the previous trial date of July 4.
The case may now have to be heard away from the Old Bailey as a new trial cannot be accommodated until January.
Mikolajek did not enter a plea to the charge at today’s hearing.
All three men will now appear again on July 15.
Mikolajek, Kulik and Szafisz of no fixed address were remanded in custody.
