Brandenburg announces that external experts will check prison security

Following a flight attempt from the prison "Roter Ochse" by the shooter from Halle, the legal committee of the Magdeburg state parliament announced that an independent panel of experts should investigate the security in the prison. The deputy head of the institution is accused of having independently relaxed the strict security requirements of the Ministry of Justice.

At the end of May, the 28-year-old suspected terrorist shooter had managed to overcome a fence more than three meters high when he had free access inside the prison walls but then failed at the doors.
