Full statement from Sylvaina Gerlich below:
“Dear Brothers and Sisters,
last Wednesday at St. Georg in Hamburg a brother from Ghana was shot by a policeman.
The news has made many of us very concerned because of the memories of America, where blacks are killed quite unlawfully ….
The affected person is part of Lampedusa group in Hamburg, he helped our association IMIC e.V. when we moved out in September to our new office and I have known him as a very positive minded person who has stuck the others with his gaiety and it is difficult to believe, he took aggressive action against the policeman.
It is also hard to believe he should have attacked a policeman with a knife. But we do not know that, and should therefore not make a judgment today about the German police officers or formulate any allegations against the German authorities.
Independent of this, leading representatives of the community expressed their concerns to me. We would also like to see a cosmopolitan Hamburg in which we feel welcomed as African fellow citizens, and we don’t want to counter wrong signals.
We will discuss this in the next week, that this case will be clarified.
Member of the Hamburg Integration Advisory Board for the continent of Africa”
