Lawyer demands 100 million euros for victims after Berlin government cover-up of Muslim terrorist’s background

Victims’ lawyer Andreas Schulz on Friday accused the officials working for the Berlin state government of gross misconduct in the handling of the Anis Amri case and demanded significant compensation. It was revealed earlier this week that authorities had allegedly been involved in a cover-up designed to hide a number of missed opportunities to arrest Amri.

“This is undoubtedly a case of government liability,” Schulz reportedly told the weekly German news magazine Focus when raising the claim of 100 million euros ($111 million) in damages.

“If they had arrested Amri back in November (2016) this terrible attack would never have happened,” Schulz added, saying that he was also considering suing a number of government officials involved in the alleged whitewash of Amri’s criminal background.
