The initial suspicion of attempted complicity in murder is being investigated, said the senior public prosecutor in erfurt, anette schmitt-ter hell, on sunday. It confirmed thereby a report of MDR thuringen.
The background is a dispute at the erfurt train station on new year’s eve 1996 between two brothers from hamburg as well as two men and a woman. Shots are said to have been fired at the brother. After the right-wing terror trio was exposed, the brothers contacted the federal criminal police office (BKA) last summer, claiming to have recognized the trio.
Senior public prosecutor schmitt-ter hell spoke of an "extremely vague initial suspicion". It is also very difficult to prove the crime after such a long time. According to MDR, the brothers did not press charges after the incident almost 17 years ago for fear of repression by the right-wing scene.
The federal prosecutor’s office had handed over the case to erfurt, as it did not yet see any evidence of a terrorist organization of uwe bohnhardt, uwe mundlos and beate zschape in 1996. Zschape must be the only survivor of the gang from 6. May to stand trial as main defendant in NSU trial in munich. She is accused of complicity in ten racially motivated murders and attacks by the terrorist cell "national socialist underground" (NSU) accused.
