There is no subject to be seen on the published video sequences. Also not seen is that the injured and on the ground lying 66-year-old politician is entered. The Bremer AFD had written a few hours after the attack in a press release, the perpetrators had hit Magnitz unconscious with a squared timber and then kicked against Magnitz 'head, as this had been on the ground.
According to AfD data, the assumption that Magnitz was beaten with a square timber comes from two craftsmen who were standing near the crime scene. These did not observe the attack, however, according to prosecutors. One of the craftsmen contradicts now also in the mirror of the AfD representation. "We did not see what happened," the magazine quotes him. Also the presentation of the AfD, Magnitz was beaten with a "squared timber" and "kicked his head", confirmed the craftsman therefore not.
For evidence leading to the seizure and final conviction of the perpetrators, praised the prosecutor Bremen a reward of 3,000 euros.
