hamburg - A man who had been recorded in Germany as a possible attacker and therefore had to wear an electronic anklet, could travel to Greece with his ankle.
German media report Thursday that Hussein Z. has flown from Syria in October from Hamburg airport to Greece and then looks to Turkey.
The man had come to the Federal Republic in 2015. The German judiciary suspects him of membership of a terrorist organization and investigates him.
The anklet stopped sending signals for hours. They were only received again when the ankle band turned out to be at Athens airport. It is legally not allowed to follow the ankle band abroad, so the electronic monitoring is completely disabled.
The German police know the case, but did not want to comment. According to the magazine Der Spiegel, Hussein Z. told his contact person in the justice and intelligence services before traveling that he was going to visit his sick son.
