Following his controversial speech in the state parliament, in which he read out the names of 21 migrant-sounding students, the Greens now want to report Burgenland FPÖ club president Johann Tschurtz for incitement. The party will submit a statement of facts to the public prosecutor’s office on Monday and request that an investigation be opened on suspicion of incitement (Article 283 of the Criminal Code), Green state spokeswoman Regina Petric said in a broadcast.
In addition, the data protection authority was also requested to determine whether publicly withholding names from an internal school document constituted a data protection breach and could lead to the imposition of an administrative fine. However, Patrik said complaints regarding violation of individual rights can only be filed by the affected individual.
On Thursday, in his speech on an FPO application to block asylum, Tschirtz read out a list of names of 21 children from the Wiener Neustadter elementary school that suggest migration backgrounds. After revealing the names, the president of the FPO club called for the deportation of criminal asylum seekers. For this he received criticism not only from all other state parliamentary groups but also from his own federal party.
