The well-known judge Birgit Malsack-Winkemann was arrested today in the raid on Reich citizens in Berlin. The former AfD member of the Bundestag should play a significant role in the planned putsch.

Since the early hours of the morning, officials from the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) and special units have been conducting a nationwide raid against a Reich Citizens’ Network. Reason: The group is said to have planned a putsch in Germany.

A well-known judge has also been arrested in a Berlin villa district: the former AfD member of the Bundestag Birgit Malsack-Winkemann. She is said to have taken on an important role with the citizens of the Reich.

According to research by “Zeit”, Birgit Malsack-Winkemannn is to become Minister of Justice in the new order planned by the “Reichsbürger” group. Who is the enigmatic AfD judge?

After studying law, the 58-year-old joined the AfD in April 2013 and pursued a career in the right-wing populist party. From 2015 to 2017 she was deputy chairwoman of the Berlin AfD district association Steglitz-Zehlendorf. From March 2017 to 2021 she was a member of the 19th German Bundestag.

Malsack-Winkemann said at the time that she had separated the tasks and after leaving the Bundestag “reacted immediately and distanced herself from it”.
