Germany - 'Nazi moll' Beate Zschäpe charged with 10 murders, robberies & arson
Face of Germany’s 'Nazi moll': Sole survivor of she-devil love triangle finally stands trial for murder of ten people (Daily Mail)
A mysterious female terrorist dubbed the 'Nazi moll' is finally standing trial for killing ten people after a 13 year reign of terror.
Beate Zschaepe, 38, has been charged killing nine immigrant businessmen and a policewoman in Germany.
She gave herself to police last year and told them 'I'm the one you have been looking for,' but has remained tightlipped ever since.
Prosecutors say she helped found the National Socialist Underground (NSU) and faces life imprisonment if convicted.
She is believed to have been locked in a macabre love triangle with two of her alleged accomplices who were found dead last November.

Germany’s 'Nazi moll' goes on trial for ten racist murders as police
are forced to restrain furious mob of victims’ families outside court
The highest-profile neo-Nazi murder trial in Germany in decades opened amid tight security and intense media interest.
'With its historical, social and political dimensions, the NSU trial is one of the most significant of post-war German history,' lawyers for the family of the first victim, flower seller Enver Simsek, said in a statement.
The case has shaken a country that believed it had learned the lessons of the past, and reopened a debate about whether it must do more to tackle the far-right and lingering racism.

Beate Zschäpe, the woman accused of being behind postwar Germany's worst ever domestic terror campaign, is suffering severe psychological effects from remaining silent during her marathon trial, a psychiatrist has claimed...
The 40-year-old Ms Zschäpe has exercised her right to silence and refused to testify throughout her trial, which began in 2013 and is set to run until early 2016.
According to a psychiatric report submitted to the court, she is now suffering a "chronic stress reaction" brought on the strain of remaining silent. The condition has brought on nausea, vomiting and skin rashes, the report by Prof Norbert Nedopil said. She has also suffered "a loss of drive, endurance and ability to concentrate, together with fatigue and tiredness," Prof Nedopil wrote.

'Nazi Bride' Beate Zschaepe Breaks Her Silence at Murder Trial
German woman on trial for neo-Nazi murders breaks silence over attacks
Beate Zschäpe tells court she was not involved in attacks by the National Socialist Underground but she regretted failing to prevent them

The German woman accused of killing 10 people as part of a neo-Nazi terror cell said in court Thursday that she has given up her old hateful views.
Beate Zschaepe, dubbed the “Nazi Bride” by German tabloids for her romantic connections to other members of the National Socialist Underground, spoke for the first time on the 313th day of her trial in Munich. She admitted she had once identified with parts of the group’s ideology.

When we visited the Munich courtroom earlier this year, all eyes were trained on Zschäpe, who stared at her laptop and seemed more worried about running out of the crate of coconut water she had brought to the trial than anything that might happen there. With her neat long hair and signature trouser-suit, she appeared deeply at ease, smiling like a professional model for a brief press photo session, before she settled back among the lawyers, from whom she is almost indistinguishable.
In the press and visitors’ spectator booth, set behind glass above the courtroom, conspiracy-theorists, bloggers, newspaper reporters, and law students studying the trial all sit together – alongside a few loyal Zschäpe groupies. (The most notorious of Zschäpe’s fans, Anders Breivik, the extreme-rightwing Norwegian terrorist, sent her a letter of solidarity from prison in 2012.)
Zschäpe originally chose her defence lawyers on the basis of their martial-sounding surnames: Sturm (“Storm”), Stahl (“Steel”), and Heer (“Army”), but she soon turned against them. Four years into the trial, she has finally found a young lawyer she likes. The two whisper and smile during the court proceedings. The main judge at the trial, Manfred Götzl, has ordered the state lawyers she fired to remain in the courtroom because their departure could be grounds for an appeal: he wants to fend off any claim by Zschäpe that her current lawyer does not have full knowledge of the trial. Sturm, Stahl, and Heer sit a few chairs down from Zschäpe in what appears a state of permanent listlessness. Behind Zschäpe sits Ralf Wohlleben, a neo-Nazi accused of providing Böhnhardt and Mundlos with the Česká pistol used in the murders. His lawyer, Nicole Schneiders, first appeared in police reports on the extreme right when she was just 16 years old. The members of the extreme-right have taken up different, coordinated positions in the Munich courtroom. The lawyers and the accused sit side by side, and greet each other with kisses on the cheek.
