Default Germany to Tighten Laws Against Anti-Semitic Crimes

Germany to Tighten Laws Against Anti-Semitic Crimes

November 28, 2019

Germany intends to strengthen its laws against anti-Semitic crimes as part of the government's response to a deadly attack in the eastern part of the country.

Justice Minister Christine Lambrecht told parliament Thursday of her planned amendment to the country's current law that would make anti-Semitism an aggravating factor for hate crimes in the nation's criminal code.

Currently, discrimination against particular groups is considered an aggravating factor, but the law does not specifically refer to Jews.
