In 2019 a YouTube video had surfaced in which a violent attack by security forces on asylum seekers could be seen. It had been filmed at the Central Contact Point for refugees in Saxony-Anhalt and the public prosecutor has now charged the security forces with bodily harm.

The video showed that security forces first separated two quarreling refugees, but then kicked them lying on the floor.

The proceedings will be conducted before the Halberstadt District Court.
