Process of planned attack on Muslims has started | – Nachrichten – Lower Saxony


Status: 07.12.2020 3:07 p.m.

A 22-year-old has had to answer before the Hildesheim district court since Monday. He is said to have planned to kill Muslims. He is said to have threatened a family with death in a chat.

According to the prosecution, the young man had already bought two professional crossbows, several knives and a baton. According to the attorney general’s office, his plan was triggered by the attacks on two mosques in New Zealand Christchurch in March 2019. Since then, the 22-year-old has dealt with right-wing extremist ideas and his own attack plans. He is charged, among other things, with the preparation of a serious act of violence endangering the state in unity with terrorist financing.

Indictment: Man wanted to kill at least 20 people

The 22-year-old wanted to kill at least 20 people and thus become a “legend” that it was “the most important thing” in his life, the prosecutor quoted him as he read out the indictment on Monday. The young man was outwardly unmoved and answered the judge’s questions about his personal details clearly and precisely. He is unemployed and lives in Hildesheim. He also wanted to comment on the charge, as his lawyer assured.

Chat partner alerts the police

The man was arrested because at the end of May he had written to an interlocutor in an anonymous Internet chat that he was with weapons in front of a mosque. He intends to kill Muslims. His chat partner then informed the police. A day later, the 22-year-old was taken into custody by special forces in his apartment. Since then he has been in custody.

The accused is said to have threatened family with death

The defendant is also accused of insulting a girl, who was then 15 years old, in chat messages in May 2017. He is said to have threatened the stepbrother and mother, also in chat messages, with killing the girl and mother. In 2019 he is said to have made racist comments in a chat.

The process is negotiated before the youth chamber

Because the accused was still considered an adolescent at the age of 18 at the time of individual allegations, the 3rd major criminal chamber, which acts as a youth chamber, is negotiating the case. The next trial date is set for December 18th. Then the defendant could comment on the allegations.
