What really happened on October 5, 2021 in the Leipzig hotel "The Westin"? According to media reports, the scandal surrounding Gil Ofarim (40) and his Star of David necklace is now part of a criminal case before the Leipzig Regional Court. The public prosecutor's office there assumes that Ofarim only invented the anti-Semitic insults against him. The charges are defamation and false accusation.
Ofarim previously defended himself against the occupation of the criminal chamber and its presiding judge, Jens Kaden. This is biased. Ofarim's lawyer Alexander Stevens argued that Kaden had claimed in a preliminary talk that he found it difficult to imagine the course of events described by Ofarim: "Because, as is well known, there is no significant problem with anti-Semitism in Leipzig." However, the court rejected this application.
