What is the process behind handwriting analysis

Celle (AP) - In the trial against the alleged German head of the Islamic State terrorist militia, Abu Walaa, a co-defendant tried to have witnesses intimidated from custody. Among other things, the house of the sister of a witness in Duisburg was recently shot, said an officer from the State Criminal Police Office in North Rhine-Westphalia on Tuesday in front of the Higher Regional Court in Celle. Another witness had been made clear through intermediaries to testify in the interests of the co-defendant.

Celle (AP) - In the trial against the alleged head of Germany's terrorist militia Islamic State, Abu Walaa, a co-defendant tried to have witnesses intimidated from custody. Among other things, the house of the sister of a witness in Duisburg was recently shot, said an officer from the State Criminal Police Office in North Rhine-Westphalia on Tuesday in front of the Higher Regional Court in Celle. Another witness had been made clear through intermediaries to testify in the interests of the co-defendant.

According to the LKA officer, the handwritten requests were sent by the lawyer of the ex-president of the rocker group Satudarah, who was also imprisoned in Düsseldorf, and by himself after his release LKA. The criminal authorities confirmed a report by the "Kölner Stadtanzeiger" from the weekend for the first time in court.

In the letters, which, according to a handwriting analysis by the LKA, are very likely to come from the co-accused Turkish travel agency owner, calls for "operations" against witnesses. A probation officer who was supposed to be a witness apparently withdrew his testimony in connection with the threats. The co-defendant, whom the prosecution accuses of radicalizing young people in the back room of his travel agency, is also said to have written to those responsible for mosque communities.
