Andreas Schüller, an attorney with the German human rights organisation European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR), discusses the landmark gains made by drone strike victims and survivors in a court case that was heard in Cologne, Germany, on May 27, 2015. The claimants in the case, three members of the bin Ali Jaber family of Yemen who lost two relatives in a U.S. drone strike in 2012, have filed suit against the German government. The family demands that the German government “take legal and political responsibility for the U.S. drone war in Yemen” and “forbid use of the Satellite Relay Station in Ramstein,” a US Air Base in southwestern Germany. The administrative court in Cologne did not grant this demand, but the family and the human rights organisations Reprieve and ECCHR plan to appeal in a higher court in Germany.
