The trial of the only surviving member of a suspected neo-Nazi cell has resumed in Munich, after being adjourned for a week.
Public defenders say Beate Zschäpe, the main suspect in the high-profile NSU trial, should be set free. The lead defender accused the court and German authorities of a miscarriage of justice.
Federal prosecutors accuse Beate Zschäpe of helping carry out a string of neo-Nazi terror attacks in Germany between 2000 and 2007. The case has been one of the most high-profile neo-Nazi trials in recent years.
Suspected far-right terrorist Beate Zschäpe could face life in prison for her role in the killings, but the victims' families are disappointed. They hoped the trial would offer more clarity on what really happened.
The ex-informant, currently in jail for sexually abusing minors, will face trial for fraud in early April. Brandt was a key figure in the German neo-Nazi scene and linked to a series of racially motivated murders.
