Documents on Persecution

This is a list of documents in relation to my persecution by the German society in general and the German authorities in particular. Most of them were introduced or produced during my asylum case in the U.S. Some of them are from a later time, though.

Selection of pivotal documents of the Rudolf case

Caution! Between 1994 and 2002, I carried the last name of my ex-wife Scheerer. Hence my name appears as such in many of the documents listed below.
