Gustl Mollath was locked up in a psychiatric hospital for more than seven years before he was rehabilitated as a victim of the Bavarian justice system. One of Mollath’s rescuers has now dealt with the case in a book.
Justice victim Gustl Mollath wants to leave Germany. “I would love to leave the country,” said the 64-year-old to the German press agency in Munich about the publication of a new book entitled “State Crimes – The Mollath Case”. “You cannot rely on this country at all.”
The book was written by the lawyer Wilhelm Schlötterer.
Mollath currently lives in northern Germany, where he says he is trying to gain a foothold. In the long term, however, he would be “happy if I could find any place in the world. I don’t want to have to stay in Germany, especially in Bavaria.” With a view to the federal election in September, he said: “This time I will be able to vote again for the first time and I have to expect that (Bavaria’s CSU Prime Minister Markus) Söder will be the next chancellor. That accelerates my desire to leave the country.”
Mollath from Nuremberg was admitted to psychiatry in 2006 after a trial for alleged violence against his wife – unjustly, as it turned out years later in a retrial. By then he had spent 2,747 days in the psychiatric ward.
Author Schlötterer, who was instrumental in ensuring that Mollath took up and won the fight against the Bavarian justice system, traces the case. In his book, the lawyer once again raises serious allegations against Bavarian politicians. “Other people are also played badly here in Bavaria, but the Mollath case was an excess,” said Schlötterer of the dpa.
