After 77 trial days, the walls are starting to adapt to the situation...

During the first months, the young Somali believed that the person in court doing most of the talking was their executioner.

In reality it was the presiding judge, who has been wearing a white bow tie throughout the trial, in order to be distinguishable from the other judges and jurors.

It took some effort by the lawyers to get the young defendants to believe that this man will not execute them, and that capital punishment is not practiced in Germany.
