So-called lateral thinkers, who pretended to be harmless helpers, quartered themselves in the Aloisius School in Ahrweiler during the flood disaster in Rhineland-Palatinate.
Now the group has left the building, according to the police.
Previously, they had been requested by the city administration to evacuate.
The State Office for Social Affairs, Youth and Care had the so-called family center closed a week ago.
It was run by the “Initiative Parents Stand Up” association.
He is assigned to the "lateral thinking" environment - which the club denies in one.
As the reason for the closure, the State Office for Social Affairs, Youth and Care stated that the child's well-being was at risk.
According to the President of the State Office, Detlef Placzek, there were "poor conditions" in the center.
So there was neither electricity nor water.
In addition, there is oily mud in the hallways.
The reason for the closure is in particular the disruption of public safety and order.
In addition, the children were looked after there without permission.
Police and the Office for the Protection of the Constitution have been closely monitoring the work of the "lateral thinkers" since the flood began, said Koblenz Police Vice President Jürgen Süs.
"Under the guise of willingness to help, conspiratorial ideas were spread here and the measures taken by the emergency services and the police were discredited."
This has increased fears and concerns in the population.
"Even after the lateral thinkers leave school, we will continue to closely monitor their activities."
