11:06 pm
was right weak stream isn't. if you ask the suspects previous actions and the views he expressed publicly strongly point to this motive i want an assistant since right wing extremists applauded the killing of vitally on social media early suspicion a rose that stephanie was part of a right wing extremist network up definition a good time i thought these are investigating whether the suspect is part of a terrorist group or network but at present we have no reliable indications of this but the federal prosecutor's office has taken up this case because of its particular importance and that in itself shows the dimensions of the murder as a possible political assassinations. the suspect has a criminal record he was previously convicted for his involvement in an attack on a german trade union demonstration last month he was also linked to an attack on a refugee center in 1903 chancellor on an american has welcomed the federal prosecutor's initiative this service is also if it's right and proper that the

11:08 pm
refugees might have something to do with his death a few weeks ago is that what they're telling you or do they actually assume that they know why voltar luko was targeted and murdered. so that a look up was quite well known for his stance for refugees prover a few cheese he opened up a few refugee centers as a politician here and has and all of this heated up in the evening in 2015 at a council meeting when he stood up for a refugee saying everyone who disagreed with this belief of welcoming them was free to leave the country at any point so the reaction was very dramatic he received death threats hundreds of them he was under police protection for a while and over all of this repeated itself after his death hate speech appeared online saying that his death was. that it was a good thing that he was a trader of the people that he deserved to die so this obviously brought the police

11:10 pm
killer then he predicts succeeded in living this double life and what are you hearing from authorities are they saying that this could be the beginning or this could be part of a fresh series of right wing killings because you know there are warnings across germany for all kinds of minorities at the moment you know to be on guard. yeah obviously we shouldn't make any such such assumption just now the investigations are still ongoing some people might think of the n.s.u. case actually when they hear about this though the n.s.u. case it was a group that in the past killed a few foreign people with a foreign groups here in germany and and there was the idea of a connection between the combat 18 and this group but nothing is clear so far and we don't know if the perpetrator acted on his own or in an organization so this
