group that does not confess
The young people who were caught by the State Criminal Investigation Service in Vienna turned out not to have known. They claimed that the blame always lay with the other gang members. The 15-year-old prime suspect is in prison, the others have been reported in general. However, some members of the group are too young and therefore considered criminally responsible.
