Juncker

Jean-Claude Juncker is critical in retrospect on the action of the police during the riots surrounding the G20 conference in Hamburg, germany “unjust and incomprehensible”. According to the president of the European Commission “each police officer his life on the game”.

“That deserve recognition, not criticism,” says the Native, in a statement Monday. “I want to be the police of Hamburg and the federal police to thank for their work during the G20 summit. The inhabitants of Hamburg who Sunday helped the city to clean up also deserve our utmost respect and appreciation: Hamburg at its best!”
