German Pair Suspected of Compiling 'Kill List' of Leftists

BERLIN – German authorities raided the homes and workplaces early Monday of a police officer and another suspect on allegations they opposed the country’s policy on migrants and were drawing up a “kill list” of left-wingers.

Federal prosecutors said the searches took place in the northeastern state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and were carried out by national police and federal criminal investigators. No arrests were made.

The Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania state Interior Ministry identified one of the suspects as a city police officer from Ludwigslust, about 40 kilometers (25 miles) south of the state capital of Schwerin.

Disciplinary measures against the suspected police officer were taken Monday in connection with the case, the ministry said in a statement without elaborating.

The two suspects, whose names were not released, are alleged to have discussed the German government’s refugee and migration policies with others in online chat groups. They allegedly stated they thought those policies would increase crime and cause a collapse of public order.

Prosecutors said the two had stockpiled food and bought ammunition for legally acquired weapons. They alleged the suspects had “seen the crisis they feared as an opportunity to hold and kill with their weapons representatives of the left-wing political spectrum.”

Raids were also carried out at the homes of third parties who have not been identified as suspects, including a second Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania police officer, the ministry said.
