Public prosecutor’s office and police continue investigation for dangerous bodily harm after attack on bremen afd chairman and member of parliament frank magnitz.
Among other things, this was due to the fact that the crime was committed jointly on monday evening, said the spokesman of the public prosecutor’s office frank passade to the german press agency. "But it was not an attempted murder."The afd and magnitz themselves classify the act of monday as such.
The party maintained that magnitz had been beaten with an object such as a piece of wood, although this was clearly refuted by video recordings of the act, according to the public prosecutor’s office. According to the afd, the cane was discovered by craftsmen who found magnitz and alerted the police. That this could have been the case was not ruled out by the prosecution either. However, the craftsmen had confessed with their backs to the crime scene. "They didn’t see the crime," passade said, referring to the testimonies.
