After Instagram post and demo: Raid on “Palestine Speaks” member
The member examined is said to be a “German with Arabic roots”. He is suspected of having approved Hamas’ terrorist attack on Israel. On October 9, 2023, a post was posted on the Instagram account of the pro-Palestinian association “Palestine Speaks” in which the group called for a demonstration. It stated that the Hamas attacks were an act of resistance. The member under investigation was registered for the demonstration.
The aim of the search was “to identify the author of the message and to secure evidence”.
There is suspicion of condoning crimes in accordance with Section 140 No. 2 of the Criminal Code. The public prosecutor’s office justifies this with the fact that “the murders and ongoing war crimes committed cannot be legally legitimized as acts of resistance.”
