Islamist vigilantes face trial for 'Sharia police'
State prosecutors in the Ruhr city of Wuppertal said on Tuesday that they have brought charges against notorious Islamic fundamentalist Sven Lau, who was behind a short-lived 'Sharia police' vigilante force in the city.
Lau, 34, is accused – with nine others – of infractions against the law on freedom of assembly over the group of high-vis-vest-wearing Islamists who declared that they would patrol the streets to police morals last September.
The German convert to Islam and leading fundamentalist preacher had declared himself to be one of the leaders of the group in a video published online.
