At the location of the Italian honorary consulate there was an obvious politically motivated damage to property. The police are looking for witnesses. A witness noticed yesterday morning that on the back wall of an office building in which the Italian Honorary Consulate is also based, a smearing of paint had obviously been painted with a political background. The State Security Department of the State Criminal Investigation Office (LKA 7) has taken over further investigations. Please call 040/4286-56789 to the information telephone of the Hamburg police or to any police station.
