19.01.2013 - Press release

Federal Government Human Rights Commissioner Markus Löning expressed shock and horror at the attempted assassination of Ahmed Dogan, the chair of Bulgaria’s Liberal Party.

I’m extremely pleased that Ahmed Dogan has survived the attack unscathed. Political violence must never again be allowed to take root in Europe.
