The comrades were also ordered to pay €5000 in compensatory damages to the police union. The convictions were based on the anonymous testimony of a police intelligence officer who was never cross-examined and who contradicted himself in his statement several times.
A spontaneous demonstration of around 300 comrades took place after the verdict.
Solidarity with the sentenced comrades!
