NSU leaflet provides trouble

A sheet of paper was found on 28 November 2004 in cart 2227 the KVB tram 16, currently provides plenty of vertebrae. “Did the police ever thought about what had the whole thing for an explanation?”, It says in the leaflet refers to the nail bomb attack in the Keupstraße in which about half a year ago 22 people were injured. The attack was “a sign of protest, a warning”. In the Keupstraße finally a lot of foreigners were living what most Germans did not like. “And if you ask me, that was just the beginning, it could get worse. German defend yourselves! “, Says the paper.

The Cologne investigators, it is said, internal documents, not evaluated this text message as a right-wing sympathizers of the stop. On the contrary: The leaflet is to be understood as “prompt the author to the public” to defend themselves against such attacks and against xenophobia.

“That takes the biscuit ground,” commented Wolfgang Wieland, chairman of the Greens in the Bundestag Committee of Inquiry into murder series of right-wing NSU, on Wednesday the former interpretation of the text by the investigators. This view shows clearly that “the investigating authorities obviously blind in the right eye were” added SPD-chairwoman Eva Högl.

With regard to the ongoing investigation by the Attorney General, the Cologne police and prosecutors do not want to comment on the investigation at that now. The investigators had a right-wing extremist background of the stop excluded relatively quickly and suspected offenders in red light districts. A devastating mistake, as has now been found that the bomb was placed on current knowledge of the NSU terrorists Uwe Mundlos and Uwe Böhnhardt.

The author, who has the controversial pamphlet dumped or lost in November 2004 in the KVB, was, according to internal documents “not detected”. Also on this and the effort which was then operated for the search, the authorities do not want to speak now. Whether a successful search, the investigation would have much progress, but is very questionable. In the pamphlet in any case there is no evidence that insider knowledge might have had something to do with the author of fact or.

Nevertheless, the criticism of politicians in the committee of inquiry is not quite ineffective. Although there were indications that the Cologne attack could have to do with the nationwide NSU series of murders of migrants who held the investigators that after some initial considerations for a pipe dream.

This also applies to the experts from the Federal, the erroneously determined expected it to at least one of the perpetrators had a center of life in Cologne. Even the witness of a murder in Franconia, the reported similarities to the Cologne stop, did not change the BKA assessment. From today’s perspective seemingly dangerous Reason: In Cologne, it did it I traded “a kind of global advance” against foreigners around, elsewhere, however, to targeted individual actions. And you could “not compare apples with pears”.
