The protection of the Constitution no longer want to argue with the AfD before the court about whether the intelligence service may refer the party to the public as a "test case" or not. The Federal office for the protection of the Constitution reported on Friday that it would accept the decision of the Cologne administrative court, which had prohibited the authority, the name of the party as a "test case".
From the point of view of the judges is missing, the state advocates a legal basis to call the party. The term is a negative effect to come in to the Public, the court found that this was an interference with the rights of the party. Since there is no legal basis, whether the interference is "unlawful and disproportionate".
sub-organizations under extremism suspicion
the protection of the Constitution chief Thomas Haldenwang said that his authority will now focus on the "primary mission", to watch the "under the extremism is suspected, the AfD part of organisations 'on The wing' and the 'Young Alternative'".
On the 15. January 2019 announced Haldenwang, that the total party will be handled in AfD as a test case, the Young Alternative (JA), and the part of the organisation of the AfD, "on The wing" as a "suspected case". The classification as a suspected case allows the office to watch this Young, Alternative and "wings" within certain limits. The prerequisites for this were not available from the point of view of the defenders of the State but for the whole party.
For the total AfD it remained, therefore, in the case of a classification as a test case, i.e., when the lowest stage of a possible observation. The Federal Agency announced this arrangement in January, at the press conference on its Homepage and on Twitter. The AfD went against it and asked the Cologne administrative court for a temporary injunction.
