CONTINUATION IN FRANKFURT, Johannemann trial: A former intern turns up

The trial will continue on Thursday. Presiding judge Werner Gröschel has announced that he will draw up a plan as soon as possible as to when which witness will be called. One problem is that a large number of potential witnesses are themselves listed as defendants and are therefore exercising their right to refuse to testify. However, Gröschel explains that one of them is not entitled to do so to any great extent, as the proceedings against this witness have already been discontinued.

JUVE - News from 19.10.2022

Former superiors of a convicted patient murderer had to answer to the Oldenburg Regional Court (for the first time) on charges of aiding and abetting manslaughter by omission (case no. 5 Ks 800 Js 69047/14 (20/16)). For legal reasons, only a very small part of the original indictment brought by the Oldenburg public prosecutor's office in September 2019 against former superiors at Oldenburg Hospital was admitted to the main trial. The main hearing did not reveal that the former superiors were partly responsible for the manipulation and murder of the legally convicted Högel. In particular, it was positively established that the defendants had no intent. The Oldenburg Regional Court therefore acquitted three doctors, a senior nurse, a senior nurse, the former managing director of the Oldenburg and Delmenhorst clinics and the former nursing director of the Oldenburg Clinic, who was defended by Antje Klötzer-Assion, of the charge of aiding and abetting manslaughter by omission.
