120 km / h in the tempo-70-zone
Amdor has to hand over his driving license
Philipp Amthor obviously wants to think about a driver. Not only for convenience reasons, the CDU politician did not negotiate a driving ban for the first time. The 29-year-old is said to have driven very fast at a speed of 50 kilometers per hour.
The Passover District Court in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania has found Philip Amdor guilty of speeding. The CDU politician will have to surrender his driving license for a month and pay a fine of 450 euros, Norddeutsche Rundfunk reported, citing a local court spokesman. Amthar has therefore filed a case in the court for refusing to accept the fine. In the Tempo 70 zone, the 29-year-old is said to have flown at 120 kilometers per hour last year. The verdict against the leader of the CDU regional group Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania is not yet final in the Bundestag.
He countered reports that he had “shown himself unreasonable” to “NordCourier” and “said he was not driving a car”. Both are not true. “Of course you get annoyed when you drive too fast,” he added: “Of course, I do not claim any special right to drive too fast.” According to the NDR, this is not the first time a CDU Bundestag member has responded to speeding: he has previously been fined and banned from driving for a month.
However, Amdor reserves the right to appeal the verdict. The editorial network Germany (RND) quotes him as saying, “Court review fines are not indecent. Everyone has the right to do so.” According to him, the ban on driving will be legally binding only if he does not file a permitted legal complaint. Amdor told Ostsee-Zeitung that he would like to hire a driver to avoid further crimes in the future, so he should think about it: “I travel tens of thousands of kilometers a year for the block.”
The 29-year-old, who has been in the Bundestag since 2017, won the direct order in the McLenbergsche Seinplot I-Vorbommern-Grefswald II constituency with 31.2 percent of the first vote. In the election in September this year, he dropped significantly to 20.7 percent in the first ballot than the SPD and AfD candidates. Despite being the first candidate on the state list, he moved back to Bundestock. He withdrew his candidacy for the post of CDU state president in the summer of 2020 because of issues related to his campaign activities for start-up Augustus intelligence.
