There is no German law to support this reasoning. Quite contary TDG requires
to provide access. Furthermore the wrong authorities try to urge something:
TDG is a federal law ...

And even if all those points are cleared, there remains the problem of
defining something "illegal". This can only be done by a court. So the
requests of the regional gouvernment are substanceless.
