Revision

On June 29th, 1992 a farmer discovers two bodies in a corn field in the northeast of Germany. During the attempt to cross the EU border, the Romanian citizens have been shot by hunters. The hunters claim that they had mistaken the people for boars. Four years later, the trial begins. It will never be proved which of the hunters had fired the fatal bullet. The verdict: not guilty. German Press Agency dpa reports: “From Romania, no one has arrived for the rendition of judgment.” The police files contain the names and addresses of Grigore Velcu and Eudache Calderar. However, their families never even got to know that a trial had been held.
