The trial into the death of Daniel H. will start in March. Defense lawyers are demanding that it take place outside of Saxony – for security reasons.

On March 18, it should be so far. Then the trial is to start on an act that has stirred up Chemnitz. At the end of August 2018, 35-year-old Daniel H. had been stabbed to death in the city, presumably by two asylum seekers. Right-wing marches in the city, attacks on migrants, weeks of unrest followed. Now one of the suspects, Syrian Alaa S., is to stand trial before Chemnitz Regional Court. But the defense is intervening: it wants the trial to take place outside Saxony.
