NAfter the unsuccessful investigations into the threatening letters NSU 2.0, the Frankfurt lawyer Seda Basay-Yildiz now wants to ensure that the author of the threatening letters is caught quickly. She published a corresponding appeal on Twitter and praised a reward of 5,000 euros for information, “which lead to the clarification of the authorship of the NSU 2.0 threatening emails (keyword: Turkensau) and to the investigation or arrest of the perpetrator (s),” as she wrote. The address given was [email protected]
Seda Basay-Yildiz was the first victim in the series of threatening letters that began two years ago and continues to this day. In addition to the lawyer, further letters have since been sent to the left-wing politician Janine Wissler and the cabaret artist Idil Baydar as well as other politicians and public figures.
It was not until August that Basay-Yildiz said at a panel discussion with Frankfurt Police President Gerhard Bereswill that she no longer assumed that the author of the threatening letters would be identified. In the conversation, she also reported on the fear that has haunted her since the threatening letters that affected not only her but also her family. “Does something always have to happen in Germany before something is taken seriously?” She asked.
It is still unclear what role a supposedly right-wing network within the Frankfurt police plays in the threatening letters. In the course of the investigation, a chat group in the 1st police station had been uncovered. A policewoman belonging to the group was logged into the police system at the time when Seda Basay-Yildiz’s personal information was requested from this computer. Later the suspicion was directed against another police officer who also belonged to the 1st precinct.
