Nine women spiked with date rape drug at event hosted by German chancellor Olaf Scholz

At the German chancellor’s event in Berlin, nine women reportedly took “knockout drops” that left them with memory loss, dizziness, and other health problems.

According to Mail Online, the Social Democratic Party’s summer party on Wednesday, July 6, shortly before the Bundestag broke for the vacation, is being looked into by the German Parliament Police.

The celebration, which took place in the Berlin Chancellery and was held in a Tipi tent, drew up to a thousand guests, including chancellor Olaf Scholz and other MPs.

Toxic substance testing has been done on the 21-year-old who attended the gathering on Wednesday and ate food and drank non-alcoholic beverages. By Saturday am, there had been an additional four instances of visitors describing the same symptoms.

SDP members were reportedly told that some guests had been spiked with “knockout drops” – a drug in liquid form that can be mixed into drinks or food.

According to German newspaper Der Tagesspiegel, SDP parliamentary leader Mathias Martin told colleagues in a letter: “At our summer party there were obviously attacks on colleagues with ‘knockout drops’. This is an outrageous event, which we immediately reported to the Bundestag police.”

Police said they were awaiting test results before coming to any conclusions.

Katja Mast, the SDP’s parliamentary chief whip, said the party was “appalled” by the incident and “will do everything in our power to clear it up”.

“I recommend everyone who is affected to report this,” she said.

The SDP co-leader, Lars Klingbeil, told Welt television he was “furious that something like this could happen at an event” organised by the party.

He said the parliamentary group’s leadership was cooperating with authorities, and that he hopes “the perpetrator or perpetrators can be caught and then brought to account”.
