In a nationwide action against the banned right-wing extremist "Artgemeinschaft", there has been a search in the area of Usedom in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, according to the Schwerin Ministry of the Interior. A spokeswoman for Minister Christian Pegel (SPD) did not say more about it on Wednesday. The NDR reported that the search had taken place in Lütow on Usedom.
Schwerin/Berlin - Federal Minister of the Interior Nancy Faeser (SPD) had previously banned the "species community". Nationwide, police forces searched on Wednesday morning 26 apartments of 39 members as well as rooms of the association "The Artgemeinschaft - Germanic Faith Community of Essential Life" in twelve federal states, as the Ministry of the Interior in Berlin announced.
The ban on the association, which often met in a hotel in Thuringia, has been in preparation for more than a year, according to the ministry. The findings of the Office for the Protection of the Constitution were decisive. The unification is directed against the constitutional order and the idea of international understanding. Dpa
