Stuttgart – Two days after the serious riots at an Eritrea event in Stuttgart , the next escalation is already looming.

The Baden-Württemberg Eritrea Association is planning a celebration for the coming weekend. And this despite the fact that the most recent event in the “Hallschlag” district triggered an outbreak of violence with 31 injured police officers and 228 arrests.

Meanwhile, politicians are announcing that they want to prevent similar riots. But how will that work? The 9 most important questions and answers about the Eritrea riots.

Where is the next street battle?

Next Saturday in Zuffenhausen. Reason: Eritreans are planning an independence festival with around 300 guests in a hall next to the Robert Bosch School. Expected start of the event: 2 p.m.

How are the police preparing?

Spokesman Timo Brenner (37) remains vague: “Further events, especially those next Saturday, will be assessed in the light of the weekend and operational measures will be tailored accordingly.”

Why doesn't the city impose a ban?

The city has not yet wanted to comment on this. The Stuttgart FDP MP Friedrich Haag (34): “As long as it cannot be ensured that there will be no further excesses of violence, Eritrea events in Stuttgart must be suspended.” The SPD security expert in the state parliament, Sascha Binder (40): “ Mayor Nopper must now decide whether, in light of the violent excesses at the weekend, the freedom of assembly must be lawfully restricted and the planned event must be banned.”

How is the arrival of rioters prevented?

Many potential rioters live in Switzerland, 61 of whom were present at the riots in Stuttgart. The state chairman of the German Police Union (DPolG), Ralf Kusterer (61): “Due to the lack of border controls, it is hardly possible to prevent entry. But you could consider special search measures to determine who is traveling there.”

How are the injured officers doing?

Police spokesman Stephan Widmann (55): “Luckily better. Everyone has now been able to leave the hospital.” According to Interior Minister Thomas Strobl (63, CDU), the number of police officers who were injured on Saturday has increased to 31.

Is the mayor now summoning the ambassador?

Unlikely. At least Mayor Dr. Frank Nopper (62, CDU) and Interior Minister Strobl are calling on the federal government to do so. The Hessian Interior Minister Peter Beuth (55, CDU) did this in July after similar riots.

How dangerous is the arrested rioter?

The police only announced that the man is 26 years old and “came to attention during a similar altercation with the police in Giessen.” According to BILD information, he is said to have thrown a stone (size: 3 fists) at police officers in Stuttgart. Accusation: attempted grievous bodily harm and physical attack on law enforcement officers.

When can we expect the first verdicts?

Public prosecutor Aniello Ambrosio (39): “We are currently examining whether the accelerated procedure is an option for all or some of the accused.” Problem: In accelerated procedures, only a prison sentence of up to one year can be imposed. After the night of the riot in Stuttgart on June 20, 2020, it took more than three months until the first suspects had to appear in court.

Where do the suspects come from?

The spokesman for the Eritrean associations, Johannes Rossum (56), claims: “Many of them come from the Ethiopian province of Tigray and only pretend to come from Eritrea in the asylum process.”
