Frankfurt/Main (dpa/lhe) - A Greenpeace action in which activists landed with paragliders on a roof of the European Central Bank in Frankfurt will become a case in the district court this Tuesday (1 p.m.). There, two men have to answer for who the indictment accuses of common trespassing. During the campaign in March last year, they unrolled a banner. The older of the two accused is said to have already appeared in Munich: He is said to have unrolled a poster in the Allianz Arena. The court wants to complete the process in one hearing day.
According to the information at the time, the environmental organization had protested "against the climate-damaging monetary policy of the central banks". The banner read: "Stop funding Climate Killers". After the request of police officers who had come to the men on the roof, the two activists left the building voluntarily after four hours, according to the police. Their personal details were determined and the two men were then released.
