Even before the raid, a list of enemies was discovered among the Reich citizens who were planning a violent overthrow in Germany. Among others, Annalena Baerbock, Friedrich Merz and Saskia Esken are on the list of Reich citizens.
The alleged right-wing terrorists who are said to have planned a coup d’état apparently operated with enemy lists. According to “taz” information, a list of 18 names was found on one of the accused. The people listed are politicians and journalists. Among them are seven members of the Bundestag who were informed of the facts by the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) on Wednesday morning. According to “taz” research, Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock (Greens), SPD Chairwoman Saskia Esken, SPD General Secretary Kevin Kühnert and CDU politician Armin Laschet are on the list.
The SPD leader Saskia Esken told the taz about the list of names: “We must not underestimate the danger posed by violent Reich citizens. These people don’t just fantasize about conspiracy theories. They had concrete plans that they were willing to implement,” said Esken. According to “taz” information from security circles, CDU party and parliamentary group leader Friedrich Merz is also on the list. He did not want to comment on the request.
According to the investigations of the Attorney General, some of the terror suspects are said to have planned to force their way into the German Bundestag with a small armed group in order to arrest members of the federal government and MPs present there. According to an internal assessment by the Bundestag police, the potential dangers resulting from the cooperation of the security authorities were “always manageable”.
According to the investigators, the list was not secured this Wednesday, but before the current procedure was initiated. According to a risk assessment by the Federal Criminal Police Office for Parliament, there have been no indications of a specific risk to date.
When asked by “taz”, the Federal Criminal Police Office did not want to say whether the journalists listed were also informed about the matter. According to taz information, at least three prominent TV presenters of public broadcasts are on the secured list. According to their broadcasters, they have not yet been informed by the police. The Attorney General did not want to comment on the matter when asked by “taz”.
