4 Acquittals in the Hambi9 Trial

Today, on November 13, 2018, the Hambi9 who were arrested in the district of Düren were brought before the local court. After about 5 hours the verdict was spoken: acquittal for all defendants.

The charge: resistance to law enforcement officers. The Hambi9 were arrested during a police action in which “escape routes were cleared of barricades”. Some had been carried away, others had refused to come down from tripods etc.. But no useless attempts were made by the defendants to defend themselves actively against their arrest.
For the defendants UP4 & UP6, both prosecutor and defense pleaded for acquittal. On the other hand, in UP5 & UP9 the attorney had demanded a sentence of 50 daily sentences a 12 Euro. The deadline for appeal is one week.
