Germany: No punishment for man who stabbed someone 6 times over ‘handshake problem’
Fahim A. a young man gets off scot-free once more. This time for stabbing a man in the back 6 times in 2017.
The man was already well known to police for 2 ongoing drug offences as well as theft in 2014 and 2015, yet these had no weight on the judgment by the court in Frankfurt.
"Even though we don’t live in Brazil there's also people here, who attack your honour, insult your sister and look at her."
In May 2018 the court gave him another warning and anti-aggression training for stabbing a man in the back 6 times because of a refused handshake in April 2017.
The only reason his victim wasn't too seriously injured was a thick leather jacket he was wearing at the time.
The court decided because Fahim A. wrote his victim a 4 page apology letter by hand and promised not to go outside the house with a knife anymore punishment wasn’t necessary.
The youth court assistant attested he had the character of an acolyte and great maturity and advised to use juvenile law.
Paired with the apology letter, anger management classes and his promise to be "knife free" the prosecution dropped an appeal against the ruling following the advice of the youth chamber of the district court.
