Magdeburg (dpa / sa) - The parliamentary committee of inquiry into the police operation in the Halle attack wants to present its results on Friday.

The committee decided on a final report in its last meeting on Wednesday, said committee boss Sebastian Striegel (Greens) of the German press agency.

The AfD had submitted a minority vote, the left announced one for Thursday, said Striegel.

On Friday he wants to inform the committee members about the concrete results.

The report should then be the subject of the state parliament next week.

The Halle committee had primarily dealt with the police operation on the day of the incident and the official actions in the weeks after.

On October 9, 2019, a heavily armed terrorist tried to break into the synagogue in Halle on the highest Jewish holiday, Yom Kippur, and to cause a massacre.

However, he did not get into the church, then shot the 40-year-old passer-by Jana L. and later the 20-year-old Kevin S. In a kebab shop, he injured other people and engaged in an exchange of fire with the police before he was arrested.

"It was important that the Halle attack is also dealt with in parliament," said Striegel.

However, the committee's investigation was inadequate because it failed to take into account many important aspects such as the perpetrator, his ideology and environment.

Among other things, the committee interviewed top officials, but also heard survivors of the attack, who later criticized the police operation and the behavior of the authorities as insensitive and unprofessional in some cases.
