  • Description

    Strict security measures were in force today (Monday) as left-wing lawyer Horst Mahler and two girls were brought to the West Berlin Criminal Court to face charges connected with the escape of a convicted arsonist last May.

    The arsonist, Andreas Baader, who is still at large, was forcibly snatched from police custody, in circumstances in which an elderly man was seriously injured. Police say they have been warned that an attempt might be made to free the defendants by an armed raid on the court.

    The case, which is expected to last several weeks, has caused something of a sensation in West Berlin. Mahler, the lawyer involved. made his name several years ago in trials involving left-wing dissidents.
