Hesse: Hessian state parliament commemorates the anniversary of Walter Lübcke's death

Wiesbaden (dpa/lhe) - The Hessian state parliament commemorated the third anniversary of the death of the murdered Kassel district president Walter Lübcke. "His murder still stuns us today, three years later," said Vice President of the State Parliament Frank Lortz (CDU) on Thursday at the beginning of the parliamentary session in Wiesbaden. "But it is also an incentive for all of us to always stand up for the basic values ​​of our democracy."

Walter Lübcke was shot dead by a right-wing extremist on the night of June 2, 2019 on the terrace of his house in the Kassel district. He had previously presented plans for refugee accommodation at a citizens' meeting and said in response to abuse: "It's worth living in our country. You have to stand up for values. Anyone who doesn't represent these values ​​can leave this country at any time if he doesn't agree. It's the freedom of every German." Lübcke's statements are said to have been the trigger for his later murder.

Lübcke's murderer was sentenced to life imprisonment for murder by the Frankfurt Higher Regional Court at the end of January 2021. The verdict is not yet final, but the Federal Court of Justice in Karlsruhe plans to announce a decision on August 25th. Both the perpetrator and all other parties involved in the proceedings had appealed.
