Baden-Württemberg: Fine after an unannounced demo in front of Kretschmann-Wohnhaus

Sigmaringen/Stuttgart (dpa/lsw) - Because he is said to have led an unregistered demonstration by opponents of the Corona policy near the house of Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann (Greens), a 52-year-old has been fined 30,000 euros. According to the judge, the man was the head of the meeting, said a spokesman for the Sigmaringen District Court on Monday. The man was therefore sentenced to a fine of 120 daily rates of 250 euros each.

The 52-year-old would be considered a criminal record. However, the judgment is not yet final. The man's defense attorney announced in the courtroom that he would appeal.

According to the police, around 60 people tried to get to Kretschmann's house during the demonstration in mid-February. A few days later, the Green politician emphasized that such demonstrations “immediately crossed a red line”. The district office in Sigmaringen later banned elevators, so-called walks and rallies in the streets around the house of the head of government by general decree.

In the case, the Hechingen public prosecutor initiated accelerated proceedings against the 52-year-old. However, the man did not come to a first court hearing in February. Instead, he wrote in a letter the same day and stated that he was ill. A judge then imposed a penalty order of 150 daily rates of 200 euros each, i.e. also 30,000 euros. The man appealed against this.

Interior Minister Thomas Strobl (CDU) declared in Stuttgart in the evening that it was unacceptable to personally threaten political leaders and their families. In such cases, serious penalties would have to follow. "Therefore, the decision of the Sigmaringen district court seems more than appropriate and necessary to me," said Strobl, according to his ministry.
