Doubt cast over details of attack on AfD lawmaker Magnitz | News | DW | 09.01.2019 “Creating fake news to get sympathy for the devil?”

CCTV may contradict Magnitz On Wednesday, however, prosecutors in Bremen questioned whether Magnitz was assaulted in exactly the manner he described. A spokesman told German news agency DPA that CCTV footage of the attack showed Magnitz being elbowed once, then falling over as his attackers ran away. Bremen police have said that the attack was “lightning quick,” and that they were investigating charges of grievous bodily harm, saying they had no photographic evidence that Magnitz was kicked while already down. Magnitz himself on Wednesday conceded that the attack may not have been politically motivated and may in fact have been an attempted robbery.
