In the eleventh year after the right-wing extremist terror cell NSU was blown up, the federal prosecutor's office dropped some of the investigations into other suspects.
Parallel investigations were carried out against nine named suspects. In the case of five of them - four men, one woman - it is now certain that charges will no longer be filed due to a lack of suspicion. Four investigations are still ongoing. In both media reports, however, it was indicated that the cessation here should only be a matter of time. According to the Federal Prosecutor's Office, the so-called structural investigations into the NSU, in which all available information and clues are compiled independently of the specific suspect, will be continued.
It is always assumed that the NSU trio had even more helpers. Despite various investigative committees in the federal government and in several federal states, many questions remain unanswered. Since this year, a second sub-committee in Bavaria has been trying, among other things, to clarify possible connections to the neo-Nazi scene there.
