BUG supported Murat F‘s complaint. He was denied entry to a nightclub in Hannover on account of his suspected migration background in 2012. The bouncer refused entry and explained that the owner had ordered him not to accept any costumers of Turkish or Arabic background.

On August 14, 2013 the District Court of Hannover pronounced the judgement of Murat F’s case. The court declared the nightclub had to pay a compensation of 1.000 € to the plaintiff and shall not deny entry on unfounded reasons in the future. Should the judgement not be respected, the nightclub could be imposed a fine of up to 250.000 €. Click here to find BUG media reports concerning the judgement.
