Germany's top security official wants to set up 'early recognition unit' to track 'right-wing extremists'' banking and 'disinformation' campaigns | 13 Feb 2024 | Germany's top security official said Tuesday that she aims to make it easier to trace [so-called] right-wing extremists' financing and plans to set up an “early recognition unit” to detect far-right and foreign disinformation campaigns as early as possible. Interior Minister Nancy Faeser's proposals follow large protests against the far right in Germany in recent weeks. They reflect growing concern after a report said extremists [sic] met to discuss deporting millions of immigrants, including some with German citizenship, and that some members of the right-wing Alternative for Germany party, whose support has doubled since the country's 2021 election, were present... "No one who donates to a right-wing extremist organization should be able to rely on remaining undiscovered," she said. Faeser added that she's working with regional authorities on preventing right-wing extremists from entering or leaving the country.
