Germany on Wednesday reacted to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's conviction in a 2019 defamation case and his Lok Sabha disqualification, stating that "standards of judicial independence and fundamental democratic principles" should be applied in this case. The government has taken "note of the verdict of first instance" against Gandhi and the "suspension of his parliamentary mandate," said Germany's Foreign Ministry spokesperson Annalena Baerbock.
