SOT Friedrich Muelln, Founder of the German animal rights organisation 'SoKo Tierschutz eV', (German): "The LPT has been known for decades as the most secretive private animal testing laboratory in Germany, absolutely notorious, contested, [with] ongoing protests. No animal gets out alive, but also no information gets out, at least not for the public. No photos, nothing, a black hole.''

SOT Friedrich Muelln, Founder of the German animal rights organisation 'SoKo Tierschutz eV', (German): "These laboratories have a weak spot. Constantly, they desperately look for staff. It is understandable, that no one likes to do this job. Well, there's a reason why they have a mix of butchers, musicians and mechanics [working there].''

SOT Friedrich Muelln, Founder of the German animal rights organisation 'SoKo Tierschutz eV', (German): "He told me about those battery cages for the monkeys, that's when I said 'Well, ok'. Then I watched the video recordings and already said 'Those cages have to be too small'. Then of course these assaults by a sadistic animal care attendant, assistant, who seriously abused the animals and wanted to punish them by smashing an animal against the doorframe.''

SOT Friedrich Muelln, Founder of the German animal rights organisation 'SoKo Tierschutz eV', (German): "This alone is a breach of law in the hundreds. On top of this were a few violent assaults against the animals by a sadist. Furthermore there is this one research, which allegedly was falsified by concealing the death of an animal in the documents, the suspicion of fraud. And added to this is the dog research, the two dog researches, which ended in a catastrophe, when the animals started to bleed uncontrollably and deceased in their blood in a very miserable way.''

SOT Friedrich Muelln, Founder of the German animal rights organisation 'SoKo Tierschutz eV', (German): "I would say all over the world, there have been 10, 15 of those undercover investigations. This is absolutely rare. And it concerns all of us. It doesn't only concern Mienenbuettel or Germany, but the customers are from all over the world. There was a company from South Korea, one from Spain, France, the USA.''

SOT Friedrich Muelln, Founder of the German animal rights organisation 'SoKo Tierschutz eV', (German): "There is the option to impose a serious sentence, especially in the case of this allegedly falsified research, because fraud is really something, that prosecutors know well about. But this is not certain, because 99 per cent of all animal rights cases in Germany are being ceased and have no consequences.''

SOT Friedrich Muelln, Founder of the German animal rights organisation 'SoKo Tierschutz eV', (German): "If you look at animal testing, Germany really is in a problematic zone, because Germany kills the most testing animals, has the most animal testing institutions and obviously has the worst standards. This is what the European Union recognized and present in 26 cases, that Germany has broken European law.''

Founder of the German animal rights organisation 'SoKo Tierschutz eV' Friedrich Muelln commented on the shocking footage allegedly taken undercover from within the Laboratory of Pharmacology and Toxicology (LPT) in Mienenbuettel, near Hamburg, during an interview in Hamburg on Wednesday.
"The LPT has been known for decades as the most secretive private animal testing laboratory in Germany, absolutely notorious, contested, [with] ongoing protests. No animal gets out alive, but also no information gets out, at least not for the public. No photos, nothing, a black hole," Muelln said.
The animal rights activist went on to explain that due to the nature of the work in the lab, they "desperately look for staff," which enabled one of their fellow activists to get a job there and begin clandestine filming within the location. Muelln said that this activist "was already able to document such grave photos in the first days, that it gave me a chill.''
According to Muelln, the acts and conditions displayed in the footage "is a breach of law in the hundreds," and that other sadistic acts and alleged research "falsified by concealing the death of an animal in the documents," provides the opportunity to "impose a serious sentence."
