Animal torturers do not come to court. Thanks to the corrupt German judiciary.

 

Germany

Do you remember when we reported about the trial, in Max Planck Institute (MPI) in Tübingen, Germany, which was scheduled on January 7, 2019?

The facts

At the Max Planck Institute (MPI) in Tübingen, painful brain tests on rhesus monkeys were carried out for years. They have to sit for hours with their heads motionless and they are forced to “cooperate” by dehydration. In 2014, an undercover research (done by the SOKO organization) documented severe maltreatment of the monkeys by the MPI staff.  The prosecute accuses the scientists (who include the director of MPI Professor Nikos Logothetis) that they did not euthanize several monkeys, even though they knew that the experimental animals suffered severely for a long time.

Doctors Against Animal Testing filed criminal charges in January 2015.

Four years later, on January 7, 2019, three employees, including the director of the Institute Nikos Logothetis, were to be brought to trial because of serious animal cruelty.

“It would have been unique in the history of Germany that animal experimenters would have to answer for their actions in court,” explains Dr. Corina Gericke, Vice Chair of Doctors Against Animal Testing.

Last information: This process has been canceled!

Reason for the refusal is:  A new report, which has given the defense at the Ruhr-University Bochum (RUB) in order.
“The fact that four years after the filing of the complaint and a few days before the trial suddenly a courtesy certificate is conjured up from the hat is a slap in the face of all animal experiment opponents,” outraged veterinarian Gericke (“Doktors against animal Testing”) .
Doctors against animal experiments therefore doubt the objectivity of this report, because at the RUB almost identical experiments were made on apes until 2012, as at the MPI. They were finished when (and only because) the researcher retired.

Who was she? Stella’s fate

 

Stella, born in 2008, was a victim of the Max Planck Institute in Tübingen. She came from the company Novartis in Vienna, where she had already been abused for animal experiments. Her skull was broken open several times, with a chamber providing access to her brain. To prevent this from growing, she was repeatedly stunned, the opening with pipe wrench and screwdriver pried open and the tissue removed. The meninges are extremely sensitive to pain, the awakening from the anesthesia is the horror. Stella’s severe wounds became inflamed, she was paralyzed on one side, constantly vomiting and suffering pain. She was kept alive and suffering to prepare for a terminal attempt, a serious animal experiment lasting several days during which Stella died. Her life ended in 2013. These terrible fates bore many names. Stella was not an isolated case.

The trial was surprisingly stopped by a secret opinion of the animal experiment lobby, the criminal proceedings set – a judicial shame.

We fight against that.

Demonstration on 12/01/2019 in Tübingen, we demand together: justice for Stella – now more than ever!

My comment: It seems clear. For the public, Logothetis is a miserable animal abuser who tortured defenseless monkeys for questionable research purposes. In reality, nothing was more than the desire to satisfy his curiosity about how the brain works. Once again a psychopath proved to us how his own works.

Eveyone who knows and studies the history of the Third Reich knows how the animal experimenters tick. Their actions coincide 100% with the mass murderers of the Nazi era. In every detail. Even Zyklon B is still used for the killing of experimental animals, even if it is discouraged.

It is not possible to keep behaviorally disturbed people out of this area.

My best regards, Venus

In 3 hours they raised £ 623,000 for animal welfare !!

Brits are pretty supportive of animal welfare and the amount of money donated in just 3 hours reflects this !

All the money raised yesterday will be distributed to 5 different animal welfare organisations in the UK.  You can see who they are via the links we have given above.

 We just want t say that this has been waiting to happen for a very long time – it just needed a major tv channel to step up to the plate and take it on.  Channel 5 were the organisation which did t.

Well done Channel 5 – this is the first but it will not be the last.

I think they will do this every year at least once; if not more frequently.

 Regards Mark

VICTIMS OF NEGLIGENCE

260 dogs and cats burnt to death from fire
at the Anseong City Animal Shelter

Hundreds of dogs and cats, which should have been safe from harm, in the care of an Anseong animal shelter have died in a raging fire that swept through the property.

If this shelter had been managed properly, then those animals would have remained safe. They are now dead. Someone must be held to account, and a lesson must be learned so that others in similar positions of responsibility will be very clear of their duties towards animals in their care, which extends above and beyond the basic provision of food and a cage.

New Calls for Action! South Koreans:
Stop the illegal dog and cat meat trades.

The weather has already dropped to

freezing in South Korea!

All across South Korea, millions of ‘meat dogs’ (including newborn puppies) which are destined for human consumption, are kept outdoors in meat farms and slaughterhouses, imprisoned in cages that are crudely constructed of wire and raised off the ground, and which afford no protection from the snow or freezing winds that are part of a normal winter in that country. These poor creatures – from the second they are born, to their final breath at the uncaring hands of a brutal butcher – have to endure endless misery and agony. South Korea is truly a “Hell on Earth” for countless innocent dogs and cats. So, please, don’t let the Koreans continue their vile and cruel practice: click the links below to take action today to help fight the South Korean dog and cat meat trades.

URGENT

Indictment for an incident of animal abuse suspended. We need everyone’s protest and signatures.

Sharing Korea Alliance for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Busan KAPCA) ‘s Facebook post on November 22, 2018.

This is an incident of animal abuse which happened at an apartment building construction site in Ulsan, Korea. A man strikes a dog tied to a post at the construction site with an aluminum pipe over one meter long, and at least three times. We received this video last summer, but the owner of this video was reluctant to publicly reveal this video at the time, so we reported the incident to the police. We had never received an update of the investigation, so we contacted the police for a response. It was the learned that an indictment for this obvious case of animal abuse was suspended. In other words, it was acknowledged that the abuser committed a crime, but he was not charged.

The animal abuse crime was acknowledged but indictment was suspended because: 1) the abuser claimed to be the dog’s owner; 2) the abuser struck the dog because the dog bit him while he was trying to feed the dog; 3) the dog suffered only minor injuries; 4) the abuser did not have a past history of similar crimes, and 5) the Citizen’s Prosecutorial Committee gave the recommendation to suspend indictment.

During the investigation, the dog disappeared and when we inquired about the whereabouts of the dog, we were told from the police that the perpetrator sent away the dog somewhere and were shown a picture of the dog.
