thank you for e-mail to the Federal President.
You asked President Rau for his opinion and help regarding the appeal of the Horno Alliance.
The Federal President has no administrative competences, neither on the federal level mor pn the level of the German states, the so-called Lander. The President has followed the political and judicial conflicts over the village's future attentively, but he cannot comment on the autonomous policies of the state government of Brandenburg or on that state's legislative decisions or on the rulings of independent courts.
Therefore I can only hope for your understanding that the only comment I can make is strictly personal one: I do hope that the solutions will be found which can be accepted as fair by the villagers and especially by the Sorbs as well as by all others involved in this conflict of interests.
Dr. Hans-Jurgen Wolff
