2021-01-21T21:10:40.215Z

Some AfD regional associations are already "suspected cases" for the protection of the constitution. Now things could get serious for the entire party. But you are threatened with a counterstep.



Some AfD regional associations are already "suspected cases" for the protection of the constitution.

Now things could get serious for the entire party.

But you are threatened with a counterstep.

Update from January 21, 10:00 p.m.: It

will be tight

for the

AfD

: The party could be

classified as a suspected case by the Office

for

the

Protection of the Constitution

next week

.

But the right-wing populists want to defend themselves - and stir up a lot of dust in the process.

And probably not just in the intended way.

According to a report by the

Tagesspiegel

, the party accuses the

Berlin Senator for the Interior, Andreas Geisel

(SPD), of influencing an

opinion by

the local intelligence agency.

Its spokesman rejected this: Neither Geisel nor his State Secretary had knowledge of the internal paper, which allegedly stated that there were “no sufficient actual evidence” for a

suspicion of

the

Berlin AfD

.

The leaked document was also not a final report, but an "ongoing, open-ended process" - in which methodological deficiencies were found.

But the volte raises completely different questions: How did the internal protection of the constitution get to the AfD?

The Senate Administration suspects an

informant

in the ranks of the

secret service

.

She announced a criminal complaint against unknown persons for "suspected treason".

Apparently heads should also roll.

Regardless of the report,

personal consequences

would be

drawn in the affected area of ​​the state protection of the constitution, it said in a message.

AfD soon completely suspected?

Meuthen announces an appeal

Update from January 20, 3:55 p.m.:

The

AfD

wants to defend itself against the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution.

In an

interview with the

dpa

, the

party chairman

Jörg Meuthen

held out the

prospect of

a lawsuit because of the plan to

classify

the AfD as a

suspected case

: “If the BfV officially declares the AfD a suspected case, we will take

all legal measures

against it - and

foreseeable success

be.

Because the legal and factual prerequisites that are absolutely necessary for an observation are simply not available. ”Apparently, a

switch

is planned for next Tuesday

between the federal and state security

chiefs.

AfD bang: the protection of the Constitution targets the whole party - quick decision possible

First report from January 19:

Berlin - The

Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution

may be on the verge of

classifying

the entire

AfD

as a

suspected case

.

Constitutional Protection President Thomas Haldenwang

could make such a classification early next week and thus enable the observation of the AfD with intelligence means, reported the

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

and the newspapers of the editorial network Germany (RND) on Tuesday.

If the AFD are classified as suspected cases, their could

members under surveillance and bugged

and

undercover agents

are used in their ranks.

Two years ago Haldenwang declared the AfD a so-called test case.

The head of the Constitutional Protection had set himself a time window of two years for the examination, which has now expired.

AfD in the sights of the protection of the constitution: decision probably next week - Seehofer is informed

A state interior minister told the RND newspapers: “The decision will be made in the coming week.” There was “great agreement” on their outcome.

The determination in the Union is even greater than in the SPD - and

Interior Minister Horst Seehofer

(CSU) is "on board".

According to the reports, the Office for the Protection of the Constitution assumes that the influence of the right-wing extremist camp in the AfD has grown over the past two years.

In March 2020, the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV)

upgraded

the “wing” that represents this camp from a suspected case to a

“proven extremist endeavor”

.

AfD may soon be a completely suspected case - "wing" resolution only "deception"?

The official dissolution of the "wing" in April 2020, which was led by the Brandenburg

right-wing extremist Andreas Kalbitz

, who is currently excluded from the AfD,

and the

Thuringian state chairman Björn Höcke

, according to reports, sees the constitutional protection as a deception, as the people are still in the AfD are active and structures continue to exist.

The AfD is likely to fight violently against their observation.

She could

file

an

emergency

appeal

with the administrative court against the classification as a suspected case

.

The

FDP interior expert Benjamin Strasser

said of the possible classification of the AfD: "If it really comes that way, I wouldn't be surprised." On Twitter, he wrote: "The right-wing extremists have had the say there for a long time." (
