The court has ruled in a trial concerning an altercation which broke out between two inmates at Schrassig prison and prison guards.

The incident occurred in April this year at a time when tensions were incredibly high due to the penal reform.

The judges ruled that the inmates would receive additional sentences of twelve and six months respectively for the attack on the prison guards. Additionally, both inmates have to pay a €1,000 fine.

One of the guards, who was punched by one of the defendants, was awarded €2,500 in damages by the court.
