The perpetrators are said to have sent threatening letters to at least 15 ministers since December and to have carried out an arson attack on a building belonging to the Federal Labor Office. Investigators have now arrested a couple in Berlin.

Federal Prosecutor's Office also involved

In the meantime, the Federal Prosecutor's Office in Karlsruhe is investigating the case. Later the public prosecutor in Stuttgart took over the case. The state criminal investigation offices or other police authorities in Baden-Württemberg, North Rhine-Westphalia, Berlin and Bavaria were involved in the intensive investigation.

A group called "Revolutionary Action Cells" appeared ten years ago. At the time, she confessed to several fire and explosive attacks on government buildings in Berlin, in which no one was injured. In 2011 she also sent a threatening letter with cartridges to the then Federal Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich (CSU). In 2013, the Federal Prosecutor's Office had apartments searched nationwide, among other things.

As the magazine "Der Spiegel" wrote in September, citing the investigators, it was initially unclear whether the group at that time had become active again and a so-called second generation was emerging. Alternatively, the suspects could have just picked up the name of the previous group.
