Wiesbaden (dpa/lhe) - The parliamentary investigative committee on the racially motivated murders in Hanau wants to deal with the accessibility of the emergency call on the evening of the crime today in the Hessian state parliament. Another topic is the question of what information the authorities had about the assassin and his father, as the state parliament announced. It should also be about the police operation.
Among other things, the then police chief of Southeast Hesse is invited as a witness (from 2.30 p.m.). Before that, a female police chief (from 9:00 a.m.), a police chief (from 10:30 a.m.) and a senior police director (from 1:00 p.m.) are to be heard.
In fact, on February 19, 2020, a 43-year-old German shot nine people with racist motives. Then he killed his mother and himself. The investigative committee should clarify whether there was a failure of the authorities before, during and after the crime.
