Note on the case descriptions

In order to avoid misunderstandings, please note that the information given under the heading 'subject of the proceeding'  in the case descriptions on the following pages only lists the criminal offense(s) of which the defendants had been accused. Whether or not, and particularly also,  to what extent these accusations were considered proven by the courts can be concluded only from a study of the trial judgments themselves.

The case descriptions do not take up any position with regard to either indictment or judgment. They are merely intended to offer an impression of the subject matter of the proceedings and of their outcome.
