Around seven months after the violent death of a transman at Christopher Street Day in Münster, the 20-year-old accused has been sentenced to five years as a youth prisoner. The regional court found the adolescent guilty of bodily harm resulting in death on Wednesday and ordered Nuradi A. to be placed in an educational institution for addicted offenders.
The public prosecutor's office had demanded a youth sentence of five years on Tuesday and spoke out in favor of a reformatory. The mentally unstable adolescent has already been noticed several times for physical harm and has been convicted once. According to the prosecution, there is a risk of further serious crimes. According to one expert, A. also needs addiction therapy and psychotherapeutic support. Then there are good chances with a view to reducing the risk of recurrence.
The defense had spoken out in favor of an “appropriate youth penalty” – without naming an exact penalty. The most important thing for the client is therapy and overcoming his drug and alcohol addiction. In juvenile criminal law, the focus is on the idea of education, not the punishment.
The accused Russian with Chechen roots had confessed to the crime and showed remorse. Malte C. (25) hit the asphalt at the CSD in August 2022 after two blows to the head. He had previously placed himself protectively in front of people who had taken part in the CSD and had been aggressively insulted and insulted by the accused. The 25-year-old died days later as a result of a traumatic brain injury.
The act had shocked throughout Germany and also sparked debates about queer hostility. However, those involved in the trial saw no evidence of a homophobic, queer or transphobic attitude in the accused.
