"It is believed that two men, aged 22 and 24, died during the Christmas and New Year period as a result of taking ecstasy tablets which had a distinctive superman-style “S” logo on them.

“We are satisfied on the evidence presented to us by Suffolk Police that Adrian Lubecki is responsible for supplying drugs of this description to the male who died on 24 December; and of possessing amphetamine with intent to supply at the time of his arrest on 2 January 2015.

“Consideration was given as to whether any additional charges should be brought against Mr Lubecki in relation to the death of the person to whom he supplied the relevant drugs. However, the current law is clear: in circumstances where a person supplies drugs or materials to another, who then freely and voluntarily administers that drug to themselves in consequence of which they die, it is not appropriate to charge the person supplying with an offence of unlawful act manslaughter.

“The supply of these drugs has had very sad and tragic consequences for these two young men and their families and is a warning of the dangers that people face when they take drugs.”

– Prosecuting lawyer for the Crown Prosecution Service in the East of England, Paul Scothern
