German prosecutors targeted a German judge for his decision to protect children from harmful mask mandates. Weimar District Court Judge Christian Dettmar had issued a ruling banning mask mandates in Thuringian schools.
German prosecutors alleged that the judge had exceeded his authority, searched his home and office, and seized his cellphone. The judge enlisted the help of prominent defense attorney Gerhard Strate, who called the investigation”unfounded” and “a perversion of the law”. He attributed prosecutors reponsse to “the madness that is beginning to spread in the Corona period”.
