Secret NSU files of the Hessian Office for the Protection of the Constitution released

Data yes, results no

The now-public NSU files from Hesse show that the Office for the Protection of the Constitution has been collecting data for years. On a specially set up website ZDF magazine Royale and FragDenstaat write the authorities “did not have an overview of their inventory, nor was the information collected always results.” They suspect self-preservation by the authorities behind the secrecy: “Many see the 120-year siege period as proof that the constitution’s Hessian safeguards have gone far worse than previously acknowledged,” the website says.

The Office for the Protection of the Constitution is said to have had a tip-off that the neo-Nazis were armed – which, however, was never followed up. In 2014, when the report was prepared, more than 500 documents were missing. Now only 200 are left.

Hardly any reference to NSU – but to Walter Lubbock’s murderer

According to the report, there was hardly any information about NSU – even though the names of Uwe Mundlos, Uwe Bonhard and Beit Jeschep appeared multiple times. However, there is no information in the files about potential positions or jobs, according to the website. However, the final judgment cannot be obtained from this. Just a lot of documents were missing.

However, the NSU files also contain information about Stefan Ernst – who later killed Kassel’s district president, Walter Lubb. The Office for the Protection of the Constitution had already determined in 2009 that he would be “assessed as aggressive and violent”. Earlier weaponry is also noted.

The reason the files were kept secret at all was to protect the work of the Office of Constitutional Protection and its whistleblowers. However, today’s interior minister Nancy Fesser already claimed in 2018, when she was still a member of the Hessian state parliament: “Society does not have to live with official files classified as secret for four generations and thus withdrawn from the public”.
