Attila Hildmann is in Turkey
As suspected, Attila Hildmann is in Turkey. The Attorney General announced this via Twitter. A timely execution of the arrest warrant against him is therefore not to be expected.
Dhe vegan chef Attila Hildmann, who appeared as a conspiracy theorist in the Corona crisis, is currently in Turkey according to the findings of the Berlin Attorney General.
A timely execution of the arrest warrant directed against him for incitement to hatred, public incitement to criminal offenses and resistance to law enforcement officers was “not to be expected,” the authority said on Thursday. The Berlin public prosecutor’s office had already taken over the investigation against Hildmann in November last year.
As the public prosecutor further announced, Hildmann has both German and Turkish citizenship. On his Telegram channel, Hildmann announced that he would soon “return” his German ID card, which he calls “employee ID card”.
Previously, according to media reports, advertisements against the 39-year-old had been collected for months at Hildmann’s place of residence in Brandenburg. Hildmann, who had made a career as a vegan chef and radicalized himself in the wake of the Corona crisis, confiscated mobile phones, computers, hard drives and memory cards in mid-November. Hildmann was arrested during the escalation of protests at the Reichstag building in August 2020.
Threat against Green politicians
In July of last year, Hildmann is also said to have threatened the Green politician Volker Beck: If he were “Reich Chancellor”, the death penalty should be introduced for Beck “by kicking the eggs,” he said, according to press reports.
The vegan cookbook author was attacked in Berlin-Charlottenburg in October. He was slightly injured in the process. A suspect at the age of 31 initially fled and was arrested a little later, the police said. The man is said to have kicked Hildmann in front of a restaurant on Schillerstrasse that evening, hit him and threw objects at him. Both men indicated to each other.
Right-wing extremist Hildmann describes himself as “ultra-right” and calls himself a “conspiracy preacher”.
