Only guests could enter the evening, yet … At least nine women who took part in a party of the German Social Democratic Party, in the presence of Chancellor Olaf Scholz, were drugged with substances known as “rape drugs”, indicates this Saturday the SPD. “The enthusiasm is quite great”, comments a spokesman for the Social Democratic parliamentary group, confirming information from the Berlin daily Tagesspiegel.
Berlin police opened a serious personal injury investigation after a 21-year-old woman filed a complaint against X. “I advise all concerned to file a complaint,” a parliamentary group official, Katja Mast, also wrote on Twitter. .
So far nine victims have been listed but the spokesman for the parliamentary group has not ruled out that there are more. In an e-mail addressed to the participants of this summer party which took place on Wednesday near the chancellery, the SPD denounced “a monstrous act that was immediately reported by us to the Bundestag police”.
A victim with no memory
About a thousand people took part in the traditional party of the SPD before the summer parliamentary break, including the Chancellor, a member of this group, but also many deputies and their collaborators. “It was an internal event. You could only enter by invitation, ”says the spokesperson. “There are still many uncertainties, the police are investigating. “
In a statement, the Berlin police, which cited only a “summer party of a political party”, explained that they had been alerted by a young 21-year-old woman who, the day after the event, had no memory of the evening. She then went to the hospital for a medical examination and filed a complaint. During the party, the young woman, who had consumed food and soft drinks, felt ill with nausea and dizziness in particular. Police said they have been informed of four other cases so far.
“Dating rape drugs,” which generally cause nausea and dizziness, refer to several mind-altering substances usually poured into people’s drinks and then abused with violence, theft or sexual assault. According to the Berliner Zeitung newspaper, in 2021, in Berlin, a city of partying and sometimes of excess, 22 cases of assaults with “rape drugs” were recorded by the police. Their actual numbers, however, are expected to be much higher, with many victims having very little memory of their attack or ashamed to press charges.
In addition, clubs, discos and other party venues in the capital were closed for most of the year last year due to the pandemic.
