Police in Germany arrested twelve men, including one of its own officers, in a nationwide probe into an extreme-right group suspected of planning attacks on politicians, asylum-seekers and Muslims, state interior ministry sources and prosecutors said Friday.

The arrests followed raids, some by heavily-armed special units, which hit 13 locations in six German states.

Police Were Wrong To Question Man At Work Over Transgender 'Hate' Tweets, Court Rules

  Police Were Wrong To Question Man At Work Over Transgender 'Hate' Tweets, Court Rules Humberside Police unlawfully interfered with a man’s right to freedom of expression by turning up at his place of work over his allegedly transphobic tweets, the High Court has ruled. Former police officer Harry Miller, 54, who founded the campaign group Fair Cop, said the police’s actions had a “substantial chilling effect” on his right to free speech. He denies being prejudiced against transgender people. Miller, who is from Lincolnshire, claims an officer told him that he had not committed a crime, but that his tweeting was being recorded as a “hate incident”.

Prosecutors allege attacks were planned on politicians, asylum-seekers and Muslims.

The twelve included a police officer previously suspended over suspicions he had links to the far-right, a source at the interior ministry in North-Rhine Westphalia state told AFP, though it was not immediately clear if he was one of the prime suspects.

From its founding in September 2019, the group's ultimate aim was "to shake the state and social order in Germany and in the end to overturn it," investigators believe.

In order to plan their attacks, the group allegedly held regular meetings which were coordinated and organised by two of the main suspects, named only as Werner S. and Tony E.

German police have faced criticism from the nation's most prominent Jewish community group, which accused the force of "negligence" in its handling of the attack. The head of the Central Council of Jews said it was "scandalous" that police were not protecting the synagogue on the Jewish Yom Kippur

The suspects, all of whom are German citizens, also communicated using messenger apps. 

Investigators launched Friday's raids to determine whether the suspects already had weapons or other supplies that could be used in an attack.

The twelve men are set to appear before a court on Friday or Saturday to hear whether they will be imprisoned on remand.

German authorities have turned increased attention to the country's underground extreme right scene since the murder of conservative local politician Walter Luebcke last June and an October attack on a synagogue in eastern city Halle.

"We as the federal government feel an obligation to ensure that anyone in Germany can practice their religion within the bounds of our legal order," said Steffen Seibert at a government press conference.
