Once again, re has been an anti-Semitic attack in Germany, followed by an embarrassing confusion between police. In Bonn, an Israeli university professor from United States was attacked by a young German with Palestinian roots. The 20-year-old was arrested after assault on Wednesday and temporarily taken to a psychiatric clinic. The doctors could not have found anything that would have justified anor stay, said a police spokesman. The accusations against man for assault and sedition were not so serious that he could be taken into custody.
First, however, alarmed police held professor for perpetrator. In a communication from police it is said that policemen had overwhelmed him, fixed him and punched him in face when he had not stood up to ir cries and stood up. "A terrible and unfortunate misunderstanding," said Bonn Police President Ursula Brohl-Sowa.
The attacker had repeatedly beaten 50-year-old philosophy professor after police data and pushed him out of his head. In doing so he insulted man in German and English and called, among or things, "no Jew in Germany!"NRW-Interior Minister apologizes
Meanwhile, scientist had left, said a spokesman of Bonn Police. Previously, Brohl-Sowa still met him and apologized to him. The police headquarters in Cologne are now investigating action of police.
The Minister of Interior of North Rhine-Westphalia, Herbert Reul (CDU), asked victim by telephone for apology. It was apparently a "disastrous misunderstanding" of police, said CDU politician of WAZ. The anti-Semitic crime itself is "abominable," said Reul. "We will not allow Hatz to be made to Jews again in Germany."
In April, a belt attack on a tipper-carrying Israeli in Berlin had caused a stir. A 19-year-old was refore guilty of insult and bodily harm.Updated Date: 13 July 2018, 12:02
