After the deadly knife attack on a regional train in Brokstedt, Hamburg's Senator for Justice Anna Gallina rejected allegations that her authority had dealt with the suspect. "We have taken all the measures that are planned," said the Green politician to the NDR "Hamburg Journal" on Monday evening.
Everything happened that according to the Resocialization Act should happen to prisoners on remand. On the day of his release from Billwerder prison, the homeless 33-year-old arrived in the city's winter emergency program. There was also a perspective consultation.
The Hamburg Parliament will deal with the deadly knife attack on Wednesday. The AfD faction has registered the topic for the current hour.
The stateless Palestinian Ibrahim A. is accused of stabbing other travelers with a knife on the regional train last Wednesday. A 17-year-old and a 19-year-old were killed and five other passengers injured.
A. had been released from Hamburg's Billwerder prison just a few days earlier after a year in custody, where he was being held for a violent crime - also with a knife. The 33-year-old was sentenced to one year in prison and was also imprisoned for a year. But since the verdict was not final, the time was officially considered pre-trial detention and not criminal detention.
Gallina had been criticized by the opposition for the way her agency dealt with the suspect.
