The State Prosecutor for Duisburg in Germany, Rolf Haferkamp, says his office has opened an investigation into possible "negligent homicide and bodily harm" over the incident. But he said there was so far no concrete evidence pointing to a specific person or group being responsible.
Rolf Haferkamp, Duisburg State Prosecutor, said, "The investigation will show whether or not there were gaps in the security plan, but only once a concrete picture has been put together. It will especially depend on the analysis of written documents. But there will also of course be witness statements and any other pieces of evidence which we can gather."
