Germany: Criminal complaint filed against BDS activists for disrupting MI's talk

Via The Jerusalem Post (Benjamin Weinthal):
The German-Israel Society branch in Berlin has lodged a criminal complaint against three BDS activists for disrupting a talk at the city’s Humboldt University in late June. 
The panel at the discussion on “Life in Israel – Terror, Bias and the Chance for Peace” consisted of MK Aliza Lavie (Yesh Atid); Holocaust survivor Deborah Weinstein, 82, a musician from Tel Aviv; and four young Israelis. An estimated 60 people attended the June 20 event, the society said. 
According to the complaint obtained by The Jerusalem Post, a female BDS activist “swung [her fists] wildly around her and attendees” as she was escorted from the university room for disrupting the event. She “continuously attempted to reenter the lecture hall and pounded on the door.” 
A member of the German-Israel Society positioned himself by the door to block her reentry, noted the complaint. Humboldt University security appeared after the start of disruptions to provide assistance. 
The criminal allegations were leveled against the BDS activists Ronnie Barkan, Majed Abusalama and Stavit Sinai. It appears that Sinai is the alleged female attacker.   Post queries sent to a University of Konstanz email address and Twitter account under Sinai’s name were not immediately respond. 
The activists shouted at the Israelis and said, “The blood of the Gaza Strip in on your hands,” and, “Child murderers.” Barkan wore a T-shirt with the words “Boycott Israel.” 
Lavie told the Jüdische Allgemeine German-Jewish newspaper that the BDS activists called the Israelis “Nazis.”
