So, just to update you. I've immediately sought contact with the poster who mentioned he was at the trial. This is a transcript of our conversation which I thought might be somewhat interesting.
I have noticed your recent post regarding the bitcoin-24 trial in Berlin. I was curious if you would be able to share some information about the case and current situation in Germany. I am representing a group of people that have lost access to their money. We have unified ourselves at: http://forum.bitcoin24-victims.co.uk/
Perhaps you would be willing to drop by and tell us your story?
Thank you kindly for your time,
probably cant tell you more than you already know. the money is still there, it's on a bank account in poland which is confiscated.
you probably are part of the group that is trying to get polish authorities to release the funds?
a "not guilty" for simon in germany would probably help to persuade the polish authorities to be a bit more lenient.
I myself do not have any connection to the thing other than I am friendly with Simon and used to trade on bitcoin-24, but I didnt suffer any loss.
You are correct that I am part of the group that is trying to release the funds. Also, we consider ourselves to be friendly with Simon as well since the whole "Polish confiscation"-case can hardly be blamed on Simon. Alas, if there were anything to blame it would be the lack of communication from his side.
Still I hope you would be able to tell us more about the case in Germany. What are the charges and who is behind it? As far as I know the German prosecutor dropped the case and released the money from the Comerzbank to Simon. After which he paid out the users of BTC24.
Perhaps you can also tell us some more about Simon himself; whether he mentioned anything about the case in Poland or what his feeling about the whole BTC24 situation is. As I said before, he is avoiding any contact with us. This is a shame since it would make more sense to team up.
Thank you for your time again,
I have been trying to get the prosecutions accusation in writing, my lawyer is on holiday, simon as well now for a week.
I think Simon's silence is prescribed by his lawyers, he does have a case against the polish administation himself, so obv he cannot talk about ongoing proceedings.
