Pope Faces Seat Belt Lawsuit
November 28, 2011 by staff
Freiburg municipality confirmed the lawsuit on Nov. 26.
A German citizen from the city of Dortmund filed a complaint against Pope Benedict XVI, saying the head of the Catholic church did not put on his seatbelt while strolling around the city of Freiburg in his “Popemobile” during his visit on Sept. 24-25.
The plaintiff, whose name was not disclosed, named Baden-Württemberg Minister-President Winfried Kretxchmann and Archbishop Rober Zolltisch as witnesses in the case and asked that they provide testimonies.
“Seatbelts save lives and the Pope should obey the traffic rules,” the plaintiff said, adding that a driver was killed in a traffic accident shortly after the Pope’s visit for failing to wear a seatbelt.
