UN concerned over police violence in Germany

The UN’s special rapporteur on torture has sharply criticized the German police over excessive use of force during anti-lockdown and anti-vaccination protests in recent weeks.

told German media that they were “gravely concerned” over-aggressive police action especially after watching videos from protests last Sunday.

"The evidence is strong enough to think that there have been human rights violations,” Melzer told German news agency DPA.

He particularly mentioned a video, which showed a German police officer punching a woman in the throat and knocking her unconscious, although she posed no threat.
