Leipzig. Germany. On September 1, 2021, the Federal Court of Justice (BGH) in Leipzig will rule on the appeals by the defense and the Hamburg public prosecutor’s office against the verdict of the Hamburg Regional Court, which sentenced Loic to 3 years’ imprisonment without probation. The defense demands
a significantly lower sentence, which is to be suspended. The prosecution wants a sentence of 4 years and 9 months. Now there is a public hearing before the BGH on September 9, 2021, which is all about legal issues. Loic can attend this hearing, but does not have to and will not.

#CopWatch #Hamburg: But who protects us from you?

Hamburg. Germany. March 26, 2020. In the last few days we have received several reports from Hamburg and other cities that point out that the new rules on contact restriction and the associated increased police presence in public places, are a doorway for arbitrary and disproportionate police action, and discriminatory police checks.

Black people and People of Color, and homeless people, sex workers and other marginalized people were subject to discriminatory and harassing control practices and attacks by the police apparatus even before Corona.
