Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:
Neo-Nazi network discovered in Germany
Wednesday, April 10, 2013, 17:54
The German judiciary has discovered a network of right-wing extremists. They sent messages to each other through letters and secret codes. It is also said to have sought contact with the NSU, the terrorist organisation which is held responsible for the murder of nine immigrants and a policewoman.
The network, according to German investigators, originates from an organization which tries to help right-wing extremists in prisons. That organization was already banned, but apparently its members have continued to maintain contacts. They are also said to have sought contact with Beate Zschäpe, the only survivor of the three neo-Nazis considered responsible for the series of murderous attacks.
This is yet another painful mistake by the German judiciary, which for many years had not thought about neo-Nazis as perpetrators of the murders of immigrants, our correspondent Wouter Meijer says. “Eight out of ten victims were Turks, so there was talk about gambling debts, Turkish gangs, conflicts with Kurds and other issues – anything but racism.”
