St. Stephen’s Cathedral, train station – attacks planned: big splash around terror fanatics


Bold effect in two terrorist attacks: both the 17-year-old who wanted to carry out an IS attack on Vienna’s main station with a knife, and the four suspected ISPK supporters who previously allegedly targeted St. Stephen’s Cathedral for an attack Christmas sits no longer in custody in Josefstadt prison.

The 17-year-old who tried to carry out a terrorist attack on Vienna’s main train station last September served just 30 days in prison. He planned to stab “infidels” indiscriminately with a knife in the name of IS and returned alone on an escalator.

Residential group in Styria
On April 11, he spent two years on partial probation in Landl for membership in a terrorist organization; he actually spent eight months in prison. He has been in custody for seven. Ali K. has been free since May 10 and lives in a shared apartment owned by the WOBES association.

The goal is to control the young person with intensive individual therapy, participation in a DERAD deradicalization program and anti-violence training. “I am confident that Ali can be freed from the ideological confusion,” lawyer Rudolf Mayer told the “Krone”. The MA 11 would also try to find the 17-year-old: from June he will be given a place in a residential group in Styria.

Terror suspects from Steffl are now in custody awaiting deportation
The four suspects who committed a terrorist attack on St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna around Christmas are also at large again. The Vienna public prosecutor’s office submitted a request for release on Thursday after “there was no longer any urgent suspicion of a crime.”

The authority confirmed the “Puls 24” report to the “Krone” that the Turkish-Tajik couple, as well as a man from Dagestan and a suspect extradited by Germany, were handed over to the Federal Office for Immigration and Asylum on Thursday morning. You are now in custody awaiting deportation – for up to 18 months. “The procedure is still ongoing,” said the spokeswoman for the Vienna public prosecutor’s office.

Two days ago, lawyer Andreas Schweitzer, the lawyer for the suspected couple, also submitted a request for release. The reason was excavations in Lower Austria in the context of research into weapons and terrorist material that was allegedly hidden there. However, these were unsuccessful, so the suspicion was unsubstantiated. The public prosecutor also had to agree.
