German authorities have launched an investigation into the death of a 22-year-old Egyptian student in the German city of Cottbus. New witnesses claim the student was racially abused by the passengers of a car that struck her and left her fatally injured in the German city of Cottbus.
However, new information reveals that the hit-and-run may have been followed by a hate crime. Witnesses claim the passengers in the car and the driver, who was caught and initially charged with reckless driving and driving over the speed limit, broke out in laughter after striking Shaden.
“The accident was shocking, but what followed afterwards was cruel,” said one witness to n.tv who said she heard the passengers laughing.
Witnesses added that they heard the passengers telling Shaden to “go back” to her country.
“I realize that there are no streets in your country, but in Germany you have to look out on the street” and “Just piss off back to your country again and you won’t get run over. Damn refugees” are among the comments that witnesses say were shouted by the passengers of the car.
Following the statements of the witnesses, a new investigation has been launched to uncover whether the hit-and-run was followed by any racial hatred or abuse, reported Reuters.
