Mönchengladbach – In the summer of 2019, the schoolgirl Emily († 13, type 1 diabetic) died on a school trip in London. The investigation by the public prosecutor’s office against the teachers who had traveled with them was discontinued because it could not be proven that they had knowledge of the illness.
But Emily’s father Kay Schierwagen (46) continues to fight, has already filed a complaint and is now the star lawyer Wolfgang Steffens from Krefeld at his side.
Before his retirement, lawyer Steffens was a judge at the Düsseldorf Higher Regional Court. Since 2003 he has represented victims and their families. In the “square timber” case, for example, he resumed the procedure, which was also suspended at the time.
In 2013, Massimiliano L. († 44) was knocked down with a square timber by a young person (17) at the “An der Piwipp” stop in Düsseldorf and died. The perpetrator was acquitted years later in the trial.
“I hope that my new lawyer manages to resume the investigation so that the guilty party can finally be determined and justice wins,” said Emily’s father to BILD.
And further: “I cannot accept that Emily is the only one to blame for her death.”
