At the same time, Haldenwang emphasized: "The Office for the Protection of the Constitution takes a close look every day at how the situation is developing." Last week, the "Spiegel" reported that the Office for the Protection of the Constitution is currently investigating whether it needs to monitor the climate protection activists of the last generation. The office had already created a corresponding test case more than half a year ago, it said.
Haldenwang said that he was "prohibited from talking about test cases". However, the President of the Office for the Protection of the Constitution pointed out in general and without reference to the last generation that a test case is a standardized procedure that must be initiated so that the Office for the Protection of the Constitution can even begin with an examination. This is not automatically associated with a qualitative assessment.
