Court hearing 28th of October, Szeged
Again the "dangerous criminal's look" was applied, Ahmed was brought to the court with chains on his feet and hand and with two masked (anti)-terror police.
Even there was enough space in the court-room, the guards refused to let enter the representative of Amnesty International. Later because the AI has registered, the judge allowed them. A guarded barricade was installed on the corridor of the court (in case protesters would show up) to prevent everybody from having even eye contact with Ahmed in the break. Still, some people are allowed to enter and monitor the trial.
The hearing started with the same speech, which explains that Ahmed was the 'leader" of the group, because "migrants gave him a pillow and food". The other disgusting part of the summary states the connection Ahmed had with "extremist Islamic organizations" and the proof for it is that he visited Saudi Arabia and India.
It seems the judge does not know that every year millions of Muslims go to Mecca for Haj. The defense lawyer intervened with claiming that this is ridiculous, it's like stating that all Christians who visit the Vatican are extremists.
Again the only thing what was read in the court was about the injuries of the police and how police cars were scratched during the "riot" (nothing related to Ahmed).
The defense lawyer gave a list of 25 witnesses (activist and journalists), asked them to be listened, and to postpone the trial.
After a short break at 11:00, the judge refused all the witnesses without any explanation, the only person who is accepted to be listened on the next hearing is a Hungarian policeman. The trial is postponed for the 30th of November.
The same day demonstrations with the demand of the immediate freedom of Ahmed, Yamen, Farouk and Kamel were organized in Berlin and Budapest.
