Today we say goodbye to our good friend and colleague Maciej Bankowski who has passed away following a short battle with cancer. CE Report quoting The First News

Maciej, who died aged 71 earlier this month, was a mainstay of the Polish Press Agency’s (PAP) English News Service for 27 years.

Along with bringing decades of experience to the department, Maciej was also happy to regale his colleagues with tales of his Bohemian days as an itinerant rock singer.

Maciej’s formidable English language skills were the result of spending many of his childhood years in London. His father, a PAP journalist, was posted to the British capital in the late 1950s as the agency’s London correspondent.
