After "Reichsbürger" raid: Göring-Eckardt: Security in the Bundestag insufficient

After the raid on the "Reichsbürger" milieu, Deputy President of the Bundestag Katrin Göring-Eckardt sees a need for improvement in protecting the parliament. "The security concept of the German Bundestag is not sufficient," said the Green politician to the newspapers of the Funke media group. "We have to talk about the question of who gets access and how, and above all uncontrolled, in the worst case even with weapons, can enter the building."

At the end of last week, the Vice-President of the Bundestag had already announced that the security measures would be reviewed. So far, however, she has not mentioned any specific adjustments.

Federal prosecutors arrested 25 people last Wednesday, including former officers and police officers. She accuses 22 of those arrested of being members of a terrorist organization that wanted to overthrow the political system. Three arrested are considered supporters. The 23 suspects arrested in Germany are in custody. The federal prosecutor also spoke of 27 other suspects.
