*) On innovations in the Legal Aid Booklet :

What’s new in the version 09/2020? ( available here but only in German)

  • In our introduction now you will find information on the subject “Racism and Repression” (Point 1.2) and several notes regarding an anti-racist handling of repression. (passt das so denkt ihr?)
  • Also we completed the point concerning “pre-trial detention” (U-Haft) (4.3.2 Detention awaiting trial (Untersuchungshaft)) with experiences of the last year.

What’s new in the version of 05/2019?

  • Some important modifications have to be considered since the turn of the year 201/2019 due to the extended permissions of the new police law in NRW.
    The most important development is the extended holding time in custody for ID determination.
    See therefore point “3.2 ID refusal”.
  • We have also revised the point on pre-trial detention in the light of recent events.
    Siehe dazu Punkt “4.3.1 Custody and arrest”.
  • Some additions have also been made on the subject of confiscation.
    See therefore point “4.2.4 Confiscation of objects”.
