Karmen T., Mousli's former girlfriend, repeats incriminating statements
against the Crown Witness
Today, Karmen T., Mousli's former partner, was interrogated as
a witness in the RZ-trial. She thereby confirmed the statements
she made towards the Federal Office of Criminal Investigation (Bundeskriminalamt
- BKA) in 1999.
According to the evidence she gave, Mousli had told her that in
the attack against the judge Korbmacher, he himself had driven the
motorbike as well as shooting the judge in the legs. When in 1995
some explosives were stolen from the couple's cellar, Mousli had
explained to Karmen T. that he had kept the explosives as a "small
favour" for a group he had been part of as a "leader"
("führender Kopf") in the past, but which he had
since parted from.
Further, the witness gave statements in relation to allegedly false
passports and protective glasses which Mousli had stored in their
cellar, and which he had supposedly used for meetings with comrades.
Concerning Mousli's financial situation, Karmen T. explained that
Mousli had received 100,000 DM from his brother and that she had
learned from another debt acknowledgement form that Mousli owed
another 40,000 DM.
In November 1999, the BKA had offered Karmen T. a place in their
witness protection programme, which she refused. Up to now, the
defence has not received any relevant files with regards to this
In general, Karmen T. responded to the questions in a concentrated
manner, gave conclusive evidence and came across as a credible witness.
Meanwhile, the Supreme Court of the Canadian North-West territories
decided in favour of the extradition of Lothar E. to the German
authorities. Lothar E. was again taken into custody and his lawyer
declared he would appeal against the decision.
