Bonn, February 25 (Tanjug) - The leftwing JungeWelt newspaper of Berlin today severely criticized the pompous solemnity, which the Bundeswer (the German army) occasioned in Germany's capital last night in honour - quote - "of a mass murderer, General Wesley Clark".
General Clark was Germany's guest last night on the occasion of his withdrawal (which was sooner than was anticipated) from the position of chief of the NATO in Europe, on the third of May of this year to be exact.
Before the military festivity criticized by the JungeWelt, General Clark spoke with German Councilor Gerhardt Schroeder and Chief Inspector (corresponding to Superintendent of the Headquarters) of Bundeswer, General Hans Petr von Kirhbach.
In recent weeks, jungeWelt has been an important source of information on the MRTA standoff in Lima, Peru, as the paper has published interviews almost every week with MRTA representatives in Europe.
The recent police raid on jungeWelt has even sent shock waves through the reformist left as well, since it was an unprecendented attack on journalistic confidentiality and freedom of the press.
The IG Media union protested against "this latest police and state's attorney's action against journalists" and stated that "the raid on the editorial offices of jungeWelt and the private home of one of its editors shows that freedom on the press and freedom of expression are becoming increasingly disregarded in this country".
