Proceedings have started against a Berlin police officer before the Tiergarten district court for jointly committed and dangerous bodily harm. He allegedly has attacked an Afghan person in 2017 at S-Bahn station Karlshorst after a soccer game.

At that time, the state security had already started its investigation due to a xenophobic background. Important at this point: The accused officer was until 2016 a member of the "Right-Wing Extremism Investigation Group" (EG Rex), which also investigated the series of attacks in Neukölln.
