The trial against rapper Bushido's ex-business partner is scheduled to continue this Wednesday (around 9 a.m.) with the video hearing of a witness in Turkey. The authorities denied the man entry to Germany. That is why the Turk is now to be questioned by video as part of a request for legal assistance. From the point of view of those involved, the man is an important witness in the trial against the Berlin clan chief and alleged accomplice. The Turk with connections to criminal members of Berlin clans was noticed for acts of violence and drug trafficking and was recently accused in connection with a shooting. In March 2021 he was deported.
The accused in the trial are 46-year-old Arafat A.-Ch. and three of his brothers for, among other things, deprivation of liberty, attempted aggravated extortion, coercion, dangerous bodily harm, insult and infidelity. The alleged crimes are said to have happened after Bushido broke ties with his manager. The 44-year-old is said to have been locked up in January 2018, pelted with a bottle and a chair. The rapper, whose real name is Anis Mohamed Ferchichi, is a witness and joint plaintiff in the criminal proceedings.
