Frankfurt/Main (dpa/lhe) - In the trial against the alleged right-wing extremist Marvin E., the defendant is scheduled to appear before the Frankfurt Higher Regional Court today. The 20-year-old North Hesse has to answer for the attempted founding of a terrorist organization and the preparation of a serious act of violence that endangers the state. Two weeks ago he had already commented on his personal life in the process. Cell phone videos were also shown in which he posed and commented in camouflage clothing during a kind of survival training.
The federal prosecutor accuses the 20-year-old of having planned attacks with firearms and explosive devices for right-wing extremist motives. According to the prosecution, he spent weeks looking for like-minded people for a terrorist organization on social media.
The State Protection Senate, which is made up of three professional judges, has to decide whether youth criminal law will be applied against the accused, since he is said to have committed the crimes as an adolescent at the age of 19. Marvin E. has been in custody since his arrest in September 2021.
