Jürgen Buck ran a small business in a town near Frankfurt. One day his home and offices were suddenly raided by a team of four police officers. They confiscated a range of documents. According to Jürgen, because he lived in a small town of 10,000 people, his reputation and business suffered as a result of a people suspecting him of criminal activity.
However, the only reason for the search was that Jürgen’s son was being investigated for speeding (which he denied). As the car was registered to Jürgen’s company, the police decided to raid not only the company offices, but also his home, to find out who might have been driving.
Ultimately the raid and the documents that were seized were useless to the case, as Jürgen’s son was simply identified by a photograph taken by a speed camera.
