dusseldorf - Almost seventeen years after a bomb attack at Wehrhahn station in Düsseldorf, a complaint was filed against the suspected perpetrator.
It concerns a man of about 50, who was also arrested immediately after the terrorist act, but had to be released due to lack of evidence.
On 27 July 2000, a bar bomb exploded at the station. The metal splinters flew up to 100 meters. Ten people were injured. A pregnant woman lost her unborn child and barely survived the attack herself. The victims were predominantly Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe. They had German lessons and were on their way home.
The suspect, who denies, had a shop with army articles in the neighborhood. He was known as weaponry and was in right-wing extremist circles. He has now been charged with twelvefold attempts at murder from racist motives. There is a maximum life sentence in Germany. The file now submitted contains 250 pages, in which 96 witnesses are presented.
