Gemünden am Main (dpa / lby) - After the verdict against two alleged supporters of the so-called lateral thinker scene, the Würzburg district court is now expected to deal with the case. Both the accused and the public prosecutor's office had appealed the decision of December 2, a spokesman for the district court in Gemünden am Main said on Monday. In the fight against the corona measures, the accused are said to have endangered an ICE in Lower Franconia in order to attract national attention.
According to the indictment, the duo helped put up five posters attached to wooden slats over the tracks on the Gemünden-Waigolshausen railway in January 2021. The banners read, among other things, in red: "Caution, broken track 2 km" and "This time fake". An ICE coming from Schweinfurt with 62 passengers drove through one of these constructions with a size of about 1.50 by 4.50 meters.
The train driver initiated an emergency stop. Nobody got hurt. The investigators quickly assumed that opponents of the corona measures could be responsible for the action. Accomplices have not yet been identified.
