[...] 2. Crimes / Acts of Violence

DURING 1997 11,719 (1996: 8,730) crimes proven or believed to have a rightwing extremist background were registered of which 790 were acts of violence (1996: 624) and 10,929 other crimes (1996: 8,106). Among the right wing extremist acts of violence are included anti-foreigner and anti-Semitic violence and acts of violence against political opponents and other right wing extremist acts of violence. The number of crimes thus increased by 34 percent and those of acts of vioelcne by twenty-seven percent. The proportion of acts of violence to the overall total of the crimes was 6.8 percent (1996: 7.2 percent). In sixty-seven percent (1996: 65 percent) of all the crimes they were propaganda offences, for example displaying the symbols of anti-constitutional organisations (para. 86a, Criminal Code).

Disseminating propaganda and use of symbols of anti-constitutional organisations:

  • propaganda offences 1994:   2,083;
  • propaganda offences 1995:   1,601;
  • propaganda offences 1996:   5,635;
  • propaganda offences 1997:   7,888.

The figures are based on statistics provided by the Federal Criminal Office (BKA), as of February 4, 1998.

Our opinion
AS THE persecution of national minded Germans has increased, with scores of Germans now imprisoned for their political beliefs or what they have written, in a mockery of the German constitutional guarantees of free speech, Germany's notorious "Office for the Protection of the Constitution," (BfV) has issued the above statistics.

The BfV is the crypto-communist internal security outfit which has persecuted nationalists ever since the creation of the German Federal Republic, under a series of dubious chiefs (like Soviet double-agent Otto John).
