The Leipzig Regional Court had given the musician Gil Ofarim the opportunity to comment on the allegations of defamation and false suspicion until Monday. Ofarim let the deadline pass. There are now several options for the further procedure.

DAccording to the Leipzig Regional Court, the musician Gil Ofarim has not yet commented on the allegations against him after visiting a Leipzig hotel. The court had given him a deadline until Monday in which it initially did not decide whether to admit the indictment, a spokeswoman said on Tuesday. “He can continue to get involved in the allegations. From now on, however, the court could announce at any time whether the prosecution would allow it.” It could still take a while before the court made a decision. It also depends on the workload of the court and other ongoing proceedings. There are no specific deadlines.

The Leipzig public prosecutor has accused Ofarim of defamation and false suspicion. The musician had made allegations of anti-Semitism against a Leipzig hotel in a viral video last October. According to the public prosecutor’s office, the incident did not happen as described.

According to his lawyer, Ofarim is sticking to his account. “You can assume that,” said lawyer Markus Hennig to the NDR media magazine “Zapp” in an article published last week when asked whether Ofarim would stick with his version of the incident.

There are several options for further proceedings: the competent chamber of the district court can approve the indictment in its entirety, it can approve it with changes, or it can not approve it. Another option is that the charges are admitted, but the proceedings are opened before the district court. The case would actually belong there in terms of the sentence. However, because of the special importance and public impact of the case, the public prosecutor’s office had decided to bring charges to the regional court.
