Halle attackers: Federal prosecutor charges

The legal review of the attack on the synagogue in Halle an der Saale should take place at the Higher Regional Court in Naumburg.

The Halle assassin has to answer for a total of 68 people in court for double murder and attempted murder. This was announced by the Federal Prosecutor’s Office, Germany’s highest prosecution, in Karlsruhe on Tuesday.

In addition, 28-year-old Stephan B. was charged with, among other things, severe predatory extortion and sedition, it was said. The Naumburg Higher Regional Court had already informed on Friday of the receipt of the indictment. The process should take place there.

On October 9, 2019, Stephan B. tried to do a bloodbath in the Halle synagogue on Yom Kippur, the highest Jewish holiday. When he failed at the front door, he shot a 40-year-old passer-by and then a 20-year-old man.
