Five years into the right-wing extremist NSU trials, the victims' families are disappointed. They demand a verdict on the radical right-wing terrorists and justice. Many feel let down by the court system.
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.
Prosecutors alleged the German officer had planned to pose as a refugee and carry out a terrorism attack on politicians. A high court dropped terrrorism charges, but the officer will be tried for other offenses.
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.
