Curtain falls on neo-Nazi hit squad

World | 12 Jul 2018

The surviving member of a German neo-Nazi cell behind a string of murders was yesterday sent to prison for life.

Beate Zschaepe, 43, was found guilty of 10 counts of murder in shootings of nine Turkish and Greek immigrants plus a German policewoman carried out by the National Socialist Underground. She is not eligible for parole.

The NSU's two male members - Zschaepe lovers Uwe Mundlos and Uwe Boehnhardt - went out killing from 2000 to 2007. They died in a suicide pact after a bungled bank heist in 2011.

Ralf Wohlleben, accused of aiding the NSU, was found guilty of complicity in murder and sentenced to 10 years in prison. Andre Eminger was cleared of complicity but will serve 30 months in prison for backing terrorists.
