Germany: Communist Kurds Clash With Police

Düsseldorf – a Kurdish November 4 protest with some 20,000 participants is turning into major clashes with police, as participants insist on displaying flags of the banned organization PKK (Kurdish Workers’ Party), violating German law. Apparently, the police have now had to bring in anti-riot water cannon vehicles.

An original translation from Die Welt:
Kurdish Demonstration Escalates
Police Use Pepper Spray
November 4, 2017, 2:19 PM CET

Several thousand Kurds congregated in Düsseldorf at a demonstration for releasing the captive PKK chief Abdullah Öcalan. They displayed his portraits, which is illegal. Clashes ensued.

The Kurdish demonstration in Düsseldorf on Saturday saw clashes with the police, after numerous participants displayed illegal flags with the portrait of the PKK leader Abdullah Öcalan. The officers were attacked with flagpoles, and upon that had to use pepper spray, said a police spokesman. The police had stopped the two protest marches, as they were displaying the illegal flags.

A photo reporter confirms that the officers repeatedly asked over loudspeakers to roll up the illegal flags, to no avail. Several protesters were taken into initial custody.

The protest was organized by an alliance of several groups, including organizations like NAV-DEM (Kurdisches Democratic Society Centre), who are close to the banned Turkish Workers’ Party PKK.

The participants came with busses from all across Europe, a speaker of the event said. They were expecting 25,000 participants.

Friday evening, the Superior District Court North Rhine Westphalia had, in an express hearing, explicitly confirmed the established jurisdiction that demonstrations may not display flags and banners with portraits of Öcalan (File.: 15 B 1371/17). The PKK is classified a terrorist organization in Germany, the European Union, and Turkey..

In mid September, a Kurdish festival organized by NAV-DEM caused dismay in Cologne. The German embassador in Ankara was summoned to the Turkish foreign ministry.

The organizers of the demonstration in Düsseldorf demand the release of the PKK leader Abdullah Öcalan, who serves a life sentence in Turkey. The PKK is classified a terrorist organization in Germany, the European Union, and Turkey. As they are close to the PKK, the NAV-DEM is on the watch list of the Office For The Protection Of The Constitution in Germany.

Suddenly, he threw her to the ground, and despite her resistance, performed sexual acts on her right next to the road. Thanks to her massive resistance, the victim was able to free herself and flee. When another runner, who was an acquaintance of hers, came her way, the perpetrator fled.
Thanks to the description of the perpetrator, at the manhunt which immediately followed, the suspect was detected in the nearby nature reserve and arrested by officers of the police station Rosenheim. He is a 34-year old, rejected asylum seeker from Nigeria.

Leipzig: After brutal rape of runner, police recommend caution
September 3, 2017
A runner is raped so brutally near the Leipzig Zoo that she has to have emergency surgery. Police are hoping for help in the manhunt by the locals – and they ask runners to be cautious.
“If you are running alone, at the moment, you should thoroughly observe your surroundings, and look behind you after you have overtaken someone. If you can, then run in pairs”, police speaker Uwe Voigt tells “Stern”.
Police are still hoping for help from the poeple. Police are looking for, in their own words:
a man of medium size, about 25 to 35 years old
with dark hair,
a short, unkempt beard
of strong build
Police are looking into possible connections with other offenses.
According to police, the man had ambushed the woman on Friday before noon in Rosental, a park-like area of the Auen forest in Leipzig which is also popular with walkers. He dragged her to the ground, pulled her onto the grass, and raped her there. He beat and kicked her face so violently that she had to undergo emergency surgery in the hospital.
According to the runner’s description, the perpetrator was of a southern type, probably wearing a grey, knee-length trousers, a blue-green checkered shirt, and a light jacket. He wore a baseball cap in a muted color.
The victim much older than 50
According to police, the victim is much older than 50 years, but the speaker did not give more details. There hadn’t been a brutal attack like this in a long time. But they were investigating whether there was a connection with two offenses from a few days ago. This were difficult though, because there were no exact description of the perpetrator in these cases.

Munich – Finally! It seems that the low-life rapist from the English Garden is caught.
As police reported on Tuesday before noon, a 27-year-old suspect was arrested in connection with the sexual assault on a runner near Emmeramsmühle in December.
He is said to have attacked and overpowered the 45-year-old woman on the Isar Isle in the English Garden from behind. Then he dragged his unconscious victim in the bushes and raped her. When the woman regained consciousness, she managed to drag herself into a near-by guesthouse, bleeding from the mouth and with a scratched up face. She had to be taken to hospital.
It seems that the man had not only struck in the English Garden. A brutal rape from November 2015 appears to have been committed by him, too. The victim back then was a 29-year-old woman.
The alleged perpetrator is a Turkish asylum seeker, who had come to Germany in 2015, and has since been living in a refugee accommodation in Munich.
He is in custody. Despite the state of evicence, the suspect denies the deeds.

Bonn – The Ghanaian (31) who was arrested Saturday before noon at the river Rhine in Beul was living in a refugee accommodation. According to informatin obtained by Bild, he is a rejected asylum seeker who had been living in St. Augustin since March 3.
The man had come to Germany via Munich from Italy, and was apprehended by Federal Police in Kassel on February 9. He applied for asylum. His application was rejected in March. Bild found out that he had already applied for asylum in Italy.
It remains unclear why he was not deported in spite of the rejected application. He lodged an appeal against the rejection on March 23. Eight days after the deportation notice, he committed the crime.
