The Frankfurt public prosecutor’s office confirmed this on Tuesday. He said he had nothing to do with it and didn’t know who was behind it 63 year old in conversation with Süddeutscher Zeitung, NDR and WDR. Someone apparently wanted the police to target one wrong track to steer.

Like the accused of Landshuter Zeitung said, his name and address should be “And all Pipapo” at the end of Threatening mail stand by his arrest led. “There are extremely nasty things like burning and gassing inside,” the man told the newspaper. “An underground style of writing that doesn’t suit me.” He spoke of one campaign against himself.

The ex-police officer is said to have appeared in the past because of right-motivated crimes. It is about rabble-rousing and insultsaid a spokeswoman for the Frankfurt prosecutor’s office. Most recently in 2015, the accused also wrote “two to three opinions”, which were published on an Internet blog by CSU faction leaders in the Landshut town hallRudolf Schnur, said this on request on Tuesday. Back then, there was a lot of discussion in local media, but Schnur emphasized that there was no legal objection to this.

On Monday, Bavaria’s interior minister Joachim Herrmann (CSU) informed that disciplinary proceedings had been initiated against the accused police officer. The Greens in the Bavarian state parliament, Katharina Schulze, demanded a comprehensive explanation on Twitter on Tuesday morning:

Comprehensive information is needed! How did a Bavarian ex-cop get the data from Hessen? How branched is the network? If he appeared before the police because of right-motivated crimes, what happened then? https://t.co/3sjgrKDtNS

The cabaret artist was among the addressees of the threatening letters Idil Baydar and the Frankfurt lawyer Seda Basay-Yildiz. The lawyer had represented victim families in the Munich trial surrounding the murders of the “National Socialist Underground” (NSU). About Basay-Yildiz, Baydar and the Hessian Left Group leader Janine Wissler personal data had previously been retrieved from police computers in Frankfurt and Wiesbaden.

According to a spokeswoman for the Frankfurt public prosecutor’s office, however, there is no evidence that the former police officer and his wife are also involved in the Retrieval of personal data from Hessian police computers stand (see update from July 27, 2:58 p.m.).

Update from July 27, 2:58 p.m .: As part of the investigation into the “NSU 2.0” network, there have been two preliminary arrests. The suspicion is directed against a 63 year old former Bavarian police officer and its 55 year old wife, announced the public prosecutor’s office in Frankfurt am Main. Both were provisionally arrested on Friday (July 24), but have since been released.

Accordingly, the public prosecutor went with the forces of the Hessen State Criminal Police Office and the Bavarian police last Friday in Landshut against the couple. The former police officer was due earlier right-motivated offenses noticed.

The two are said to be behind the e-mails with offensive, hateful and threatening content that was sent to members of the Bundestag and other addressees. Since there were no conditions for an arrest warrant, the two suspects were released again been. The evaluation of those seized during the search Disk as well as further investigations were ongoing.

Update from July 26, 6:05 p.m .: 69 threatening emails to 27 people were self-proclaimed “NSU 2.0” sent. But where did the right-wing extremists get it from sensitive information about their victims?

“Who as a police officer queries data and this available for crimes such as death threats is itself a case for the prosecutor and must be released immediately, ”left-wing parliamentary group leader André Hahn deeply condemns the alleged illegal queries. Due to the unauthorized access to data, it had nationwide in 2018, according to information from the “Welt am Sonntag” over 400 administrative, criminal or disciplinary proceedings against police officers given.

The Control mechanisms In this regard, there are significant differences from country to country and some are only extremely random. In Baden-Württemberg every 50th query must be justified, in Hessen only every 200th access, is it[calledKonstantinKuhleinteriorexpertoftheFDPcomplainsthattrustinthesecurityauthoritiesisshakenbytheviolations”Theinteriorministersofthefederalandstategovernmentsmustensurethat[calledKonstantinKuhleinteriorexpertoftheFDPcomplainsthattrustinthesecurityauthoritiesisshakenbytheviolations”Theinteriorministersofthefederalandstategovernmentsmustensurethatunauthorized data queries can be stopped immediately“, He demands. The clarification, which is currently often very slow, must also be improved.

Federal Minister of the Interior Horst Seehofer (CSU) does not want to remain inactive. “I will check whether the Access to police databases with biometric features enables better protection, ”he announces,“Data access is a very sensitive matter and should therefore with the highest standards be protected. ”If the suspicion of a right-hand cell within the Hessen police is true, however, significantly more massive steps are likely to be necessary.
