In the proceedings surrounding the Love Parade disaster in Duisburg, several lawyers for the defendants have attacked a key expert opinion for the prosecution. The defense attorneys would challenge the expert opinion both in terms of content and form, a spokesman for the Duisburg Regional Court said Friday. The court is currently considering whether to admit the prosecution. In the tragedy on July 24, 2010, 21 people were killed and more than 500 injured in Duisburg.
