German Police arrest seven in raid on ultra-right
German Police performed simultaneous raids in several states and the capital, Berlin, on 25 January. Several people from the ranks of the ultra-right who are suspected of preparing to attack asylum seekers, Jewish community members and police officers themselves were arrested.
Deutsche Presse-Agentur (DPA) reports that the German Prosecutor-General informed the public that six of the seven people arrested have also allegedly been involved in terrorist activities, according to detectives. The investigation targeted the so-called "Movement of Citizens of the Reich", which generally considers the current Federal Republic of Germany to be an illegitimate state and mostly espouses the Weimar Constitution of the German Reich of 1919, as well as the country's Prussian past.
German media report that police officers conducted house searches in the Moabit quarter of Berlin and the states of Baden-Württemberg, Brandenburg, Lower Saxony, Rhineland-Palatinate, and Saxony-Anhalt. The daily B.Z. reported that police officers found computers and other electronic devices in the homes that were searched.
