Training on antisemitism for judges and prosecutors
Hannover (dpa/lni) – Lower Saxony is launching a new training course on anti-Semitism for judges and prosecutors. As announced by the Ministry of Justice (MJ), the offer is mainly aimed at the youngest judicial officials. The goal is to sharpen your eyes to recognize and classify anti-Jewish incidents.
According to the MJ, about 40 people participate in the two-day digital offer. “Action against anti-Semitism is a central issue of our time,” said Justice Minister Barbara Havliza (CDU). The new advanced training program is intended, among other things, to provide assistance in dealing with conspiracy stories in practice.
Last week, Havliza presented new guidelines for recognizing anti-Semitic crimes. Its goal is to help the police and the judiciary uncover and prosecute anti-Semitic crimes.
