In Germany, former nurse has admitted to killing a hundred patients, reports The Guardian. Confession he gave on the first day of the hearing.
On the question of the validity of the accusations against him, Niels Hegel means answered in the affirmative. “All I admitted, really happened,” he added.
As explained by judge Sebastian Buurman, the main purpose of the meeting is to establish the true scale of serial murder. “We will do everything possible to establish the truth, he said. — If we are in a house with dark rooms, we want to bring light into the darkness”.
The prosecution alleges that from 2000 to 2005, a man killed 36 patients in the hospital of Oldenburg, 64 — in nearby Delmenhorst. All were exhumed 130 people who died under the supervision of Hegel. According to the investigation, was he doing lying in intensive care patients injection with lethal doses of drugs to “show colleagues and superiors your skills bring people back to life and fight boredom”.
According to one of the more than one hundred plaintiffs, the fact that Hegel so long allowed to kill people, “a real scandal”. “They (hospital authorities and the police — approx. “Of the tape.ru”) had many ways to stop it, it doesn’t need to be Sherlock Holmes,” said the grandson of one of the dead. He also added that he did not expect such a quick confession from the defendant.
For the first time the nurse was condemned in 2008 for attempted murder. Then he was given seven years in prison. The second time he was sentenced to 15 years in 2015 for the attempted murder of five or more persons. Hegel means the psychiatrist confessed 30 murders, it gave the authorities a reason to continue the investigation.
