Unordered advertising material, uninvited calls and finally a flyer from the “III.
way”: Ex-Bundestag member Andreas Wagner gets mail almost every day.
The police are investigating.
Geretsried – Ex-MP Andreas Wagner received a flyer from the right-wing extremist small party “III. way” found in the mailbox. Apparently "activists from the Munich/Upper Bavaria base" distributed several such leaflets in Geretsried. At least the group boasts on its website with a corresponding message and a photo of four people in black jackets in front of Geretsried town hall.
The unsolicited mail joins a series of alleged attempts to harass Wagner. Almost every day he gets parcels to his home address in Geretsried that he didn't order. The 49-year-old had previously received anonymous calls and a sticker bearing the signature of the neo-Nazi scene (we reported). Deliveries started with a 14-kilo package. It was addressed to "Andreas Yehuda Wagner". According to the online encyclopedia Wikipedia, the name is of Hebrew origin and the designation for a Judean or Jew. The box contained brochures on various topics from the Federal Council. Further deliveries followed from organizations where you can order information material free of charge. One broadcast said "SED-Büro Wagner", while others would look inconspicuous.There were also calls about the callback service of a health insurance company, a Berlin law firm and other places that offer this online.
Unsolicited mail: Ex-Bundestag member Andreas Wagner turns on the police
According to Wagner, he found out that there were always two e-mail addresses behind the orders or call-back requests that someone had created in his name.
"Whoever is behind it seems to invest a lot of energy and time." He takes the matter seriously.
Because of the system behind it, it was anything but a bad joke for him.
"This is psychological terror."
Wagner suspects the incidents to be a reaction to his warning against infiltrating unregistered “walks” by opponents of the Corona measures.
His name is on lists of conspiracy ideologues and right-wing extremists.
He also appeared in a 2020 data collection from the Swiss sect Organic Christ Generation.
The title was "Leftists to Hell: Shutting Up the Systemlings".
Wagner filed a complaint at the time.
Criminal police determined because of the initial suspicion of the threat
This time, too, the former Left MP turned on the Weilheim criminal police. In the case of the sticker, she is investigating because of the initial suspicion of a threat, i.e. a criminal offence, explains press spokesman Stefan Sonntag. The flyer that was recently thrown in still has to be checked. The packets and calls would be more in the direction of silly pranks. Nevertheless, the police are aware that it is an "unpleasant situation". “We are trying to find out who is responsible for this,” emphasizes Sunday.
Wagner hopes that the craft will be put a stop to.
"This isn't just about me.
Such attempts at intimidation happen again and again,” says the ex-MP.
The goal is always to silence someone.
"I won't let that happen to me.
The attempts at intimidation will not be successful.” Wagner emphasizes that the fact that he wants to shut down his Facebook page at the end of the month has nothing to do with it.
"I don't have the time to moderate the comments," says Geretsrieder.
He will continue to speak privately on social networks.
He will remain the political person he has been since he was young – without a party, said Wagner.
After leaving the Bundestag at the end of last year, he turned his back on the left.
“There are many ways to get involved socially and politically.
It doesn't have to be in a party.” He is currently updating his 1995 book “Death March”.
Wagner: "In March I'll start working again."
