Police launches formal investigation over vigil in front of Graz synagogue

About 30 citizens of Graz had stood in front of the synagogue on August 22, the night after the attack on the president of the Jewish community, Elie Rosen.

Tristan Ammerer from the Greens party has now received a notification that the police has launched a formal investigation because "the sidewalk had been used for purposes other than traffic and the vigil had not been reported to the respective authority" in addition "civilian surveillance forces" had observed that Ammerer had not paid attention to the Covid-19 protective measures such as masks and distance.
