Wels public prosecutor is investigating again

Zerbes: The prerequisite for domestic proceedings has existed for some time
The Viennese criminal law professor Ingeborg Zerbes criticized the actions of the Upper Austrian law enforcement authorities. From her point of view, it was already evident with the suicide of the doctor last Friday that the Austrian judiciary was responsible for investigations into dangerous threats with suicidal consequences within the meaning of Section 107 Paragraph 3 of the Criminal Code.
Citing media reports, according to which Kellermayr has been massively threatened by a German suspect since last autumn, that should have been enough to initiate domestic proceedings for persistent prosecution under Section 107a of the Criminal Code: “By the woman sending his text messages that were suitable to impair them in their way of life in an unreasonable way in Austria, the necessary intermediate success – establishment of contact according to § 107a Abs 2 Z 2 StGB – has occurred.”
The fact that the suspect’s actions were likely to have a lasting impact on the doctor’s lifestyle “is obvious,” said Zerbes. As a result of the severity of the verbal attacks, it would not have taken a particularly long time to take criminal action against the man: “The more severe the pressure exerted on the person concerned, the less frequently and over a shorter period of time the perpetrator has to establish individual contacts have,” explained the criminal law professor.
“Women are completely abandoned”
The association Autonomous Austrian Women’s Shelters criticized that many women in Austria are “completely abandoned by the authorities, not taken seriously, rejected, misinformed or even yelled at when they want to file a police report. Too many reports are made by the public prosecutor’s office, dangerous Far too few perpetrators are taken into custody, the proceedings take a long time,” it says.
Authorities would actually be obliged to stop violence. Instead, the martyrdom of those affected would be “prolonged by constant, unbearable victim blaming and victim-perpetrator reversal that takes place on a daily basis”.
