The total includes, for example, 800,000 euros in compensation, 288,000 euros in loss of earnings and 90,000 euros in legal fees.

+++ 13:01: Protestant Church Discovers 770 Victims of Sexual Abuse +++

One year after the start of the structural review of sexual abuse, the German Evangelical Church (EKD) now identifies about 770 victims. Many of them were children-to-children in diocesan institutions, but there were also abuses in church communities, Bishop Kirsten Schehrs, the bishop in charge of the preparation, said at a meeting of the EKD in Dresden. To increase victims' participation in the work, the church will set up an Advisory Council. A budget of 1.3m euros already earmarked for prevention and recovery for 2020 will increase the EKD by one million euros, Fehrs reported.

Victims did not go far enough from the church steps, said Kerstin Klaus as a spokesman for the victims. The Protestant Church has long hesitated before tackling the abusive issue of abuse in 2018. Now the church must focus on the needs of those concerned, a transparent compensation scheme is needed. Contrary to what the Catholic Church has been doing for years, the Protestant Church does not want to pay a lump sum to the victims, Jersey said earlier. As Klaus said, it is not a church to be liberated. What is needed is a lifelong effort to bring justice to the victims.

Arguments may emerge here in Sunday's discussions. This will allow some colleagues to agree on the outcome, he said. He now expects a positive debate on the outcome in the Union faction.

+++ 9:49: AFD wants Environment Ministry Consultant Examination Committee +++

+++ 9.41 pm: Span presents retirement dismissal +++

Pensioners in Germany have to pay significantly less for health insurance contributions next year. Health Minister Jens Span (CDU) has submitted a legal wording, according to a ministry spokesman in Berlin. The intention is to implement the basic decision of the coalition committee on Sunday. At their occupational retirement, pensioners today pay the full rate of health insurance, currently 14.6 percent – and not just 7.3 percent employee share. So far there is only a release limit of 155.75 euros. Whoever receives a higher occupational pension had to pay the entire contribution for the whole pension company.

As of 1 January 2020, according to Span's draft, an additional 159 euros will now apply. It is only from this level that contributions to occupational retirement in general become obligatory, as has been called for in government circles. Since 60 per cent of pensioners receive a salary of less than 318 euros, they will have to pay up to half of the contribution rate in the future. The remaining 40 percent should be substantially exempt from the free allowance. Legal health insurance has thus escaped 1.2 billion euros annually.

Europe, therefore, is following the trend. Eighty-two percent of the cities where electric borrowers are available are in Europe – led by Madrid, Paris and Barcelona. In Germany, the market is expanding. There are now bids in this country in 17 cities, said study director Enrico Chau. Thus, Germany remains one of the most important individual markets.
