St. Stephen’s Cathedral, train station – All five terror suspects released from custody

A big surprise in two acts of terror: Both the 17-year-old who wanted to carry out an IS attack on Vienna’s main train station with a knife and the four suspected ISPK supporters who are said to have targeted St. Stephen’s Cathedral for an attack before Christmas are no longer in custody in the Josefstadt prison.

The 17-year-old who tried to carry out a terrorist attack at Vienna Central Station last September was only in prison for 30 days. With a knife he planned to stab “infidels” at random in the name of IS, and only turned back on an escalator.

The four suspects who carried out a terrorist attack on St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna around Christmas are also back free foot. The Vienna public prosecutor’s office filed an application for release on Thursday after “there was no longer any urgent suspicion of a crime.” The authority confirmed to the “Krone” that the Turkish-Tajik couple, as well as a man from Dagestan and a suspect who had been extradited from Germany, had been extradited to the Federal Office on Thursday morning for immigration and asylum were handed over. You are now in detention pending deportation. “The proceedings are still pending,” said the spokeswoman for the Vienna public prosecutor’s office. Two days ago, lawyer Andreas Schweitzer, the defense attorney for the suspected couple, also submitted an application for release from custody. The reason was excavations in Lower Austria as part of an investigation into weapons and terrorist material that was supposed to be hidden there. However, these were unsuccessful, so the suspicion was not substantiated. The public prosecutor also had to agree.
