Mannheim/Stuttgart (dpa/lsw) - A good four months after the death of a man as a result of a police operation in Mannheim, Interior Minister Thomas Strobl announced in the state parliament that the case would be thoroughly investigated. The mission will be thoroughly and holistically processed, said the CDU politician on Wednesday at a meeting of the interior committee on the subject. The right lessons will be drawn from this.
According to an expert report, the man died of a "position and fixation-related respiratory disability," as the Mannheim public prosecutor announced. According to the State Criminal Police Office, at least one video was circulating on the Internet showing how one of the police officers hit the man lying on the ground in the head.
