Corona pandemic: After the death of a doctor: Austria wants to fight hate online

In response to the death of a threatened doctor, Austria's judiciary and security authorities are to be better equipped to fight hate online. Justice Minister Alma Zadic (Greens) announced on Saturday that she would work together with Interior Minister Gerhard Karner (ÖVP) to give every police station and public prosecutor's office the necessary resources and tools to take all victims seriously and to call perpetrators to account in a timely manner . "This research often takes too long, which is of course extremely stressful for those affected," she said.

The doctor Lisa-Maria Kellermayr, who was involved in the fight against the corona pandemic, had been exposed to massive death threats from the scene of the opponents of the measures for months and had therefore turned to the police. Since the suicide of the 36-year-old doctor about a week ago, Austria's authorities have been accused of not taking enough care of the case.

Investigations are now also underway in Germany. On Friday, the apartment of a 59-year-old man accused of threatening and stalking Kellermayr was searched in Upper Bavaria.
