The lawyer Ulrich Baumann said on Tuesday on request.

Berlin-born Alexander M. was sentenced to five years and ten months in prison last Thursday in Frankfurt am Main for a series of emails, faxes and text messages with death threats and racist insults to lawyers, politicians, journalists and public figures.

The Frankfurt district court found the 54-year-old guilty of incitement to hatred, disruption of public peace by threatening to commit a crime, use of anti-constitutional symbols, insult, attempted coercion and threats.

The accused had denied the allegations to the end, in a plea he had made himself he had previously demanded an acquittal. The regional court saw a single perpetrator of the Berliner as proven.

The letters were signed “NSU 2.0” – an allusion to the right-wing extremist terrorist cell National Socialist Underground (NSU) and their series of murders.

The co-plaintiffs in the Frankfurt trial – the member of the Bundestag Martina Renner (55, The left) and the Frankfurt lawyer Seda Basay-Yildiz (46) – and the public prosecutor said on request that they would not take action against the verdict.
