Nearly 400 suspected cases of right-wing extremism were discovered at German security services between 2017 and March this year. This is stated in an inventory by the government of right-wing extremism within the police forces, reports The mirror Tuesday.
The federal security services, such as the national police, involved 58 cases. 319 issues were counted among the services in the 16 German states.
In recent weeks, several right-wing extremism scandals within the police forces have come to light. Many of the cases involved the distribution of images of, for example, Adolf Hitler, and insults against migrants distributed in chat groups. In some cases, persons within security forces had contact with right-wing extremist groups or attended events where hatred against migrants was spread.
However, German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer does not want the police to be vetted by independent investigators. He does present the report with the state of affairs to all security services. That report was prepared by the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution.
