“If a fair judgment is made and if the criminals get the deserved punishments, a serious message would appear against rising racist and discriminatory movements in Europe, primarily in Germany and other places,” Bozdağ told reporters at Parliament.
“If the court’s ruling will be a ruling that satisfies justice sentiments, the Turkish people’s and the foreign communities’ mistrust of German institutions, which appeared the day those incidents appeared, would be re-established,” the deputy prime minister continued.
The trial of a neo-Nazi, Beate Zschaepe, 38, suspected of involvement in the killings of 10 people between 2000 and 2007, most of them Turks, opened yesterday in Munich but adjourned until May 14.
