‘Sharia police’ who Patrolled German city of Wuppertal in Orange Vests to Face Trial


“Düsseldorf state court said on Tuesday that eight of the nine accused men can face trial on the grounds of ‘violating laws against wearing uniforms with political messages.’” This is just a technicality. I know they got Al Capone on tax evasion, and if that was the only thing that would stick, then so be it. But these men really should be tried for enforcing sharia, which is not German law, in Germany. Instead, Germany is welcoming Muslim migrants by the hundreds of thousands, and before long, the sharia police will be enforcing German law.

A German court has ruled that a group of Islamic extremists who patrolled the streets of Wuppertal in orange vests, bearing the words “Sharia police” can be tried. A Wuppertal district court had dismissed the case.

Düsseldorf state court said on Tuesday that eight of the nine accused men can face trial on the grounds of “violating laws against wearing uniforms with political messages.”

The decision overturned a ruling by Wuppertal district court last December, in which the judge said the behavior of accused Islamist preacher Sven Lau did not amount to a “criminal violation of the ban on uniforms.” The decision sparked controversy in Germany and led to an appeal by prosecutors. The latest ruling by the Court of Appeal cannot be overturned.

Lau, who is widely regarded as a leading figure in the German Salafist scene, was also indicted by federal prosecutors last month on suspicion of supporting a terror group linked to the self-declared “Islamic State” (IS) in Syria.

The Salafists, who are all aged between 24 and 35, first made headlines in September 2014 after they patrolled the streets of Wuppertal, in Germany’s western industrial Ruhr region, in an attempt to enforce a strict interpretation of Islam.

Wearing orange vests, emblazoned with the words “Shariah police,” the defendants allegedly demanded people at nightclubs stop drinking alcohol and listening to music.

The bearded fundamentalists were also observed calling for an end to gambling as they carried notices, in English, declaring a “Sharia Controlled Zone.”

At the time of the reports, German Chancellor Angela Merkel commented that no one had the right to do the police’s work for them….

Apparently, she did not say that Sharia police were at variance with German values.
