The #Federal police is penetrated during #Erdogan visit unasked in my Bundestag office and has lost the unwanted #YPG & #Kurdistan flags.

The officials had left a note. It was said that during a "routine inspection" posters have been found and these had been "taken on the occasion of the state visit of the Turkish President," according to house rules. The house rules of Parliament prohibits the placing of posters "on doors, walls or Windows in the public buildings of the German Bundestag, as well as Windows and facades of these buildings, which are visible from the outside". Because of the incident, the left party demanded clarification from Wolfgang Schäuble. The President of the Bundestag does not possess in the property of the Parliament only the right, but also the police violence. This is even regulated in the basic law. This independent competence to protect the Bundestag prior to influence by the Executive and the judiciary. To ensure that there is a "police of the German Bundestag", the Parliament, the President. It is for all of the Bundestag building is responsible for the offices of members of Parliament. The officials who entered the mayor's office, were those the Bundestag police officers.
Therefore, the body is action Brandts against Schäuble. In his reply to the links group, Schäuble refers to an opinion of the unit, ZR3 (police, security tasks) of the Bundestag administration. It States, according to the organ action, that "to fear due to the Posters was that of the followers of Turkish President provokes feeling and in the follow-up actions to the detriment of the German Bundestag companies could". It had to be assumed that followers to get carried away could cause, damage to the building or in the building. To these dangers, the Federal police decided to remove the posters immediately. Brandt considers this reference to a kind of danger for the fed, because the area had been cordoned off in front of the building because of the state visit spacious. "The 'unter den Linden' has only To be and served at the departure of the Turkish President and his Hotel," says Brandt. Also the reference to the right he thinks is weak. Brandt points out that in the Bundestag ", many members of Parliament with posters and Info-unmount Material" without the steps.
but Above all, the Left-the Deputy considers Enter his premises for a violation of his constitutional rights. In its organ of action, it is, in the members ' offices to be stored "normally documents" that had been given to the parliamentarians in the framework of its activity "by the voters thereof". These documents would enjoy "special protection" and this protection right had been violated by the Intrusion of police in his absence. In addition, the officials had acted without the Express permission of schäuble. Whether Brandt has with his evaluation right now to the Federal constitutional court to decide.
