for years now, the Frankfurt attorney-at-law Seda Başay experienced-Yıldız, for their profession is treated with hostility. A woman does not write her on Facebook under the name: "are you Ashamed of? You defend terrorists who reject the state that allows you to your law degree." A man: "aren't you Ashamed to defend a criminal, and still have money to claim?" Seda Başay-Yıldız, 42 years old, grew up in Marburg, is also aware of the racist failures that are quickly to Hand: they were To be repealed the same sideline together with their clients, "in the realm of camel milk and urine drinkers, you would be better," emailed her the other day to someone.
When the topic of Islamist terrorism over cook the fury, "by popping the Fuses," says Başay-Yıldız in their office in the Frankfurt station district. The hate mail I assumed, therefore, especially in this summer of all-new proportions. The case Başay-Yıldız worked at the time, was on page 1 of the image-newspaper: It was a so-called offenders, the alleged former bodyguard to Osama bin Laden, Sami A.
The image was of the essence, deport him. The courts were skeptical. And the lawyer Başay-Yıldız? Straining against deportation, she was a fighter, which made the Land of North Rhine-Westphalia because of a hasty, illegal deportation action to condemn, and even a forced ride money of 10 000 Euro against the responsible authority. The rule of law prevailed, but the lawyer was the hate figure; the hate mail on your account to drum fire.

And for the first time, she filed a police report. It goes to a Fax, addressed to the lawyer. It was: "As retaliation for 10 000 Euro penalty, we kill your daughter" - the first name of the daughter followed - "in" - here's the correct street and house number of the family followed. The Fax, received on 2. August, at 15:41, contained all of the usual failures. "Bad Türkensau! Are you doing Germany is not finished. Fuck you dear, as long as you're still alive, you bastard!"
it was signed with "NSU 2.0", a nod to the neo-Nazi gang that moved for years murdering across the country. But for Başay-Yıldız, it was clear that whoever had sent the Fax, had to have special insights. Because your home address has a lawyer many years ago from the phone book. And: The name of your daughter, who was not in the summer, yet even two years old, she has never called publicly.
The Fax is sent from a cheap provider. The sender is anonymous. In the letter head, is another allusion to the gang of murderers NSU, was a member of the Thuringian Böhnhardt says: "This free Fax was sent to you by Uwe Böhnhardt",. Meanwhile, the investigators of the Hessian land criminal police office (LKA) came on a track that leads you, of all people in their own ranks: in Frankfurt am main, 1. Area of the police, a Central location on the Zeil located; there is a civil servant in the summer, had the name of the Sami-A.-lawyer to run through the internal police system, without an occasion.homes were searched, hard drives seized
Four months the internal investigation of the police to take now. You have found the opportunity to some. Meanwhile, a group of five police suspended the officer from service, the woman and four men. Apartments have been searched, phones and hard drives seized. The Five should have exchanged over the messenger service Whatsapp xenophobic and Nazi-glorifying messages, so it looks the Frankfurt public Prosecutor's office, investigated for sedition and the use of anti-constitutional symbols.
Five Frankfurt officials are already suspended from the service. The suspicion: sedition
Similar Chats in the ranks of the police has always existed. Most recently in October had made in Saxony, a former police student of well-known, such as in his environment, it was rushed: "We are from Cottbus, and not from Ghana, we hate all Africans," it said in the chat group. Also in Saxony LKA had been suspended in September-man, because he visit of the Turkish President gave the state of the deck the name "Uwe Böhnhardt". But it is a direct threat against the Frankfurt attorney-at-law, and her daughter would be a much more serious Crime.
it is unclear what the connection to the threatening Fax's to prove the suspect Frankfurt officials. Whether the Fax came from your circle, or whether they had passed on the data of Başay-Yıldız - so far, the public Prosecutor does not exclude different variations. Two investigators of the LKA came to Başay-Yıldız in the firm, you have given your tips. You should warn the nursery of your daughter. You should tell them when she goes to events with lots of people.
Not only the lawyer has found in connection with the deportation case, Sami A., the great echo in the media and strongly polarised, hostile experienced. The judge, who had been jumping Sami A. to the side, charges due to threat and insult. "But the judges have such a case, only once on the table," says Başay-Yıldız. A lawyer who specializes in terrorism proceedings, had it all the time.
