Trial on 20th of June canceled for now

Some days ago we posted her a solidarity call for the support of R’s NoG20 trial.  the beginning of the trial against failed initially due to formal error.

This morning, o 19th of June, the planned beginning of the trial against activist R. on 20th of June 2018 was cancelled due to a formal error in the penalty order. The entire section describing the supposed criminal act was missing. This shows how the court is overstrained by the number of lawsuits they‘re trying to push through.

With the trial‘s beginning being cancelled for now, the courts strategy to blindside R. failed.

The court set a trial date very soon, ignored that the lawyer has no time at the trial date by dismissing an application to change the date, did not give real access to the court files by only allowing access in Hamburg – to a lawyer far away in Göttingen. In the end this led to having no lawyer and no clue whats in the court files four days before the trial. Luckily they did not get through with their strategy.

There will be no trial this week but they might send a new penalty order with a new trial date. If that happens the info will be published here.

Solidarity not penalty orders!

Freedom for all G20 prisoners!
