“We know that the nationality of the suspects will stir up emotions,” he said, translated from German. “A single, young man has, according to current knowledge, most shamefully and brutally abused our hospitality, openness and tolerance in Cottbus.”
“However, the satisfaction that came with the successful investigation is mixed with concerns that all foreigners in Cottbus are now under suspicion, but the courts are responsible for the convictions of suspects.”
