The case sounds explosive: A lawyer who is fighting against the Corona measures is taken to the psychiatric ward by the police. The authorities make it clear: There is no connection.
The measures that the federal states have adopted to contain the corona pandemic are far from being understood by all citizens. Some take action against it with different means – also legally. The case of the Heidelberg lawyer Beate B., who became known as the "Corona lawyer", made the headlines. She had submitted an urgent application to the Federal Constitutional Court to lift the measures in all federal states.
A few days later, the police took her to a mental hospital. A link between their fight against restrictions and psychiatric accommodation is being made on numerous platforms.
