Hesse: Aid fund supports victims of the Volkmarsen amok drive

Wiesbaden (dpa/lhe) - The Hessian aid fund for victims of severe violence and terror has paid money to nine victims of the Volkmarsen amok drive for the first time. The eleven-member advisory board made the decision in April, as the state parliament announced on Friday in Wiesbaden. The money had been transferred and entered the family accounts. "The committee did not provide any information on the respective amount of the sums in order to protect the families," it said.

On February 24, 2020, a man intentionally steered his vehicle into the Rose Monday parade in Volkmarsen in northern Hesse, injuring dozens of people, including 26 children. The perpetrator was sentenced to life imprisonment in December 2021 for, among other things, attempted murder. The verdict is not yet legally binding.

The "Fund for the Victims and Relatives of Serious Violence of Nationwide Significance and Terrorist Attacks" is endowed with two million euros per financial year.
