Hamburg Justice – “There are several Anis Amri” – Politics
After the announcement of possibly extremist statements by the suspected knife attacker from Brokstedt, Ibrahim A., Hamburg’s Senator for Justice Anna Gallina came under pressure. The opposition in Hamburg’s parliament suggested that the Green politician resign on Monday. “If it turns out that Ibrahim A. was able to threaten attacks while in prison and was still released without consequences, Justice Senator Gallina will finally be unstoppable,” said CDU faction leader Dennis Thering. A few months before his release from custody in Hamburg, Ibrahim A. is said to have compared himself to the assassin from Berlin’s Breitscheidplatz, Anis Amri. “There is not just one Anis Amri, there are several, I am one too,” he said to officials, the judicial authority said. The statement from August 2022 was recorded in the prisoner’s personal file.
