Rammstein investigation: Shelby Lynn files a complaint

Shelby Lynn (24), who was the first woman to make serious allegations against Rammstein singer Till Lindemann (60), lodges a complaint against the Lithuanian police. This is reported by the "world".

It had previously become known that the police in Vilnius would not initiate criminal investigations against the frontman and any other suspects. However, this decision still has to be confirmed by the public prosecutor's office. The authorities in Vilnius told the "Welt" that they had not yet made a final decision. Shelby Lynn has now lodged a complaint against the police decision: "I lodged a written objection yesterday." She also asked for access to the files. "I am completely irritated by the actions of the Lithuanian police," Lynn continues.

The Northern Irishwoman made the first allegations after attending the Rammstein concert on May 22 in the Lithuanian capital. A little later, further descriptions of Rammstein concerts were published via social media, which correspond to Lynn's descriptions. Young women were "specifically" selected during concerts and invited to after-show parties. Sexual acts are also said to have taken place. Research by the NDR and the "Süddeutsche Zeitung" substantiated this. Lindemann rejects the allegations, his lawyer called them "without exception untrue".

The band, meanwhile, made a statement in which, among other things, it says: "The publications of the last few days have caused irritation and questions among the public and especially among our fans. The allegations have hit us all very badly and we take them very seriously serious." The six musicians don't want any "public prejudice" - in either direction. "We condemn any kind of transgression and ask you: Do not participate in public prejudice of any kind towards those who have made allegations. They have a right to their point of view," the post reads.
