The attack on G. Korbmacher.
Contradictions regarding the participation of Tarek Mousli. Today Tarek
Mousli was examined about the attack against the Judge at the Superior
Court Guenter Korbmacher in September 1987. At that time, Korbmacher was
shot in front of his residence in Berlin Zehlendorf with a small calibre
pistol into the upper leg. In a statement of a group of the RZ about the
attack, that was read today, the attack was declared as
"punishment" of a "burocrat".
Mousli, who first was questioned by the Presiding Judge Hennig and
afterwards by the Supporting Judge Hanschke, stated that within the group
where he was a member of, there was a controversial discussion about the
attack. Although he had some concerns, he took part in the preparation
process. Together with "Sebastian", according to Mousli this was
Lothar E., he observed the surroundings of Korbmachers residence over an
extended period. But on the day of the attack, he and "Sebastian"
were listening to the police radio in a save apartment in Berlin Kreuzberg.
When questioning the witness, the judges Hennig and Hanschke only
superficially touched the issue, that Mousli former girlfriend Karmen T.
had stated to the police in an interview, that Mousli had told her, he
himself was the person who shot at Mr. Korbmacher. Mousli denied this story
today again and commented that Karmen T. must be confused.
Late afternoon, the defence decided to examine Mousli more intensly
regarding the Korbmacher complex. Here the contradiction between Mouslis
statement and the one of Karmen T. played the main role. Even after intense
questioning it remained open, how Ms. T. could be convinced, that Mousli
himself shot at Korbmacher. The question, who rode the motocycle when the
shots were fired, remained unanswered. Mousli declared that he has no
knowledge about that.. He even couldn't remember, if they talked
afterwards about the issue. But he admitted, that some time before the
attack, he did test drive the motocycle.
The court case will continue Friday August 24, at 9:15.
