Dissolution of an Islamic Association as a Result of the Terrorist Attack of 2 November 2020 Suspended

As a result of the terrorist attack on 2.11.2021, the Vienna Police Directorate, as the association authority, dissolved two Islamic associations with immediate effect by means of a mandate notice without any preceding investigative proceedings.
