Top German court overturns ‘Sharia Police’ acquittal

Germany’s Federal Court of Justice ruled Thursday that a regional court had erred when deciding in November 2016 to acquit the Muslim vigilantes, because the chamber had not examined the impact of the vigilantes’ actions on the public.

The case revision had been sought by public prosecutors.

The seven men, put initially on trial in Wuppertal for falsely wearing uniforms, had patrolled the western German city of Wuppertal at night in September 2014, wearing orange warning vests bearing the words “Sharia Police.”

The Wuppertal regional court subsequently ruledthat the vigilantes had not broken German law simply by approaching people while wearing the emblazoned vests.

    A regional court comprised of die merkelbeest bootlickers doing what they hoped would lead to good promotions given time …………………………..
    Nice to see public prosecutors get a good win once in a while over such “judges”.

      I seriously wonder if prosecutors are not in tune with their other colleagues to extract as money as they can from the public, continuous work projects so to speak.

        Kinda like Canadian judges turning repeat offenders loose to give lawyers more work when they re-offend.

  • So it is permissible to wear a uniform in Germany while not actually being a member of the police?

    Interesting …

    I wonder how many other gangs of sharia police are not being stopped or reported on? Have no fear coming soon to a Canadian city near you.
