Berliner Tageszeitung: Criminal complaint in Berlin, Germany, against Elon Musk and Twitter for possible fraud to the detriment of users

BERLIN, May 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BERLINER TAGESZEITUNG reports today that a criminal complaint has been filed with the Berlin public prosecutor’s office against Elon Musk, file number: 253 UJs 1012/23, alleging that Musk charged Twitter users on their credit cards but blocked them without giving any reason.

“Blocking user accounts is a daily occurrence at Twitter, but the fact that they then continuously charge money to users’ credit cards makes the matter explosive and is currently occupying the Berlin Public Prosecutor’s Office (Federal Republic of Germany). In any case, the question arises as to how much power a medium like Twitter can be granted at all and when the regulatory authorities should intervene to protect Twitter users.”

Incidentally, this is not the first time Elon Musk has been investigated, as there is also currently an investor lawsuit against Tesla CEO Elon Musk. The lawsuit is about Musk’s tweets in August 2018 with the premature announcement that he wanted to take the electric car company off the stock market and had secured the financing to do so. It later emerged that there were no firm commitments from investors.

“Elon Musk lied,” said a lawyer for the plaintiffs.

US Judge Edward Chen (Judge of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California) had already found in the 2022 trial that Musk’s statements in the tweets had not been true.

“We will continue to monitor the case closely and report further developments as new information becomes available. It remains to be seen how the criminal charges against Elon Musk and Twitter will develop and what the consequences might be.

From a factual point of view, it should be noted that according to Article 48 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, the presumption of innocence applies to defendants and accused persons, which must also apply in the case of the criminal charges against Elon Musk for “suspected fraud to the detriment of Twitter users”.

Cherry of Occupied Syrian Golan… a taste with flavor of resilience

The season of picking cherry crop in occupied Syrian Golan began for the current year, amid increased difficulties as the Israeli occupation tight the noose around the farmers to seize their lands and complete its settlement scheme through building wind turbines and set obstacles in front of marketing the crops.

Despite all actions of Israeli occupation , farmers of the occupied Syrian Golan continue to cling to their lands full of apples and cherries, which are distinguished by the quality and sweet taste.

Farmer Jad al-Karim Nasser told SANA reporter that all kinds of cherries in Golan are a source of joy and a symbol of belonging to the land, adding although all the circumstances and difficulties, the cherry will preserve its own splendor and gives beauty to the occupied Golan.

“Weekends are crowded with visitors from all over occupied Palestinian territories, from Galilee and Carmel to the Negev and the West Bank, to enjoy the cherry fruits and support the steadfastness of the people of Golan by shopping in the popular markets they set up, as the cherry season has become a wedding of belonging to the homeland that has been watered with the blood of its sons,” Nasser adds.

Released captive, Youssef Shams, for his part, noted that this year is considered a one of the most difficult years for the farmers of Golan, stressing that the cherry production amounted to 20 %, and the cultivated areas with cherry trees reached up to 7,000 dunms.

The cherry orchards in occupied Golan, particularly in the areas of Sahita and Al-Hafair, come under the risks of occupation seizure of more than 4000 dunums to build wind turbines.

Head of non-Governmental al-Farabi Humanitarian Foundation in Kazakhstan, Akmaral Batalova, said that Syria has defeated the forces of international terrorism.

“The foreign powers have spent huge amounts of money and wasted painstaking efforts to launch a misleading media campaign against Syria, yet the Syrian people showed steadfastness and achieved victory over international terrorism and external intervention,” Batalova said in a televised interview.

Batalova, who recently visited Syria at the head of a Kazakh humanitarian delegation, expressed confidence that the situation in Syria is improving, hailing high performance of the Syrian delegation at Jeddah summit.

Batalova indicated that the humanitarian aid campaign for the earthquake-affected people in Syria took place first spontaneously, and then received the support of President Kassym Tokayev.

Batalova supervised the shipment of tons of Kazakh humanitarian aid to Syria and was at the head of the Kazakh humanitarian delegation that visited Damascus, Aleppo and Lattakia, and distributed aid, including Kazakh traditional tents.

The Syrian drama bid farewell to another of its stars, with the departure of one of the pillars of the Syrian theater, the renowned artist Osama al-Romani, who folded more than half a century of dramatic, theatrical and radio work, leaving works that are still entrenched in the Syrian memory, with characters that varied in form and content.

The body of late actor , who passed away at dawn last Monday, at the age of 81, was escorted from Dar Al-Shifa Hospital in Damascus into his final resting place in a cemetery near Sayyida Zeinab shrine.

Despite his absence for more than forty years from the Syrian drama, Romani left a good impression present in the memory of the companions of Syrian artists who expressed their grief at the loss of one of the few remaining from a time period that immortalized a distinctive imprint in the memory of generations.

The companion of his first creative career and his friend, renowned actor Dureid Lahham, recalled in a statement to SANA the most beautiful moments that they shared together in the theater, through the plays “Ghourba” and “Tishreen Village”, leading to the last two dramatic and cinematic works that he collected after many years, which are “Alive in Love,” and the movie “Two Days”, which he will not be able to attend its showing on the seventh art screens, describing him as an exceptional artist with high morals and loyal to his art and colleagues.

“This is exactly what our Qatari media and journalistic institutions do,” said Al Khater. “They have always been there to help QRCS in fundraising campaigns and publication of the news of its local and international operations”.

He thanked the leaders of Qatar Press Center for making this agreement a reality and looked forward to stronger cooperation, by enhancing QRCS’s visibility on the one hand, and providing health, relief, and volunteering training for journalists on the other.

For his part, HE Chairman of Qatar Press Center stated: “This understanding would strengthen the social role of Qatar Press Center and QRCS, serving as a model for cooperation among the country’s media and humanitarian organizations. We at Qatar Press Center seek to make the most out of QRCS’s humanitarian and media track record and enable journalists to benefit from its expertise, for the benefit of everyone. At the same time, all the resources of Qatar Press Center will be available for QRCS to use, towards our shared goals”.

Al Rumaihi revealed plans to hold a joint training workshop on “Media Coverage from a Humanitarian and Legal Perspective”. Presented by experts from QRCS, the event will be attended by many journalists working in Qatar.
