It’s about a possible right-wing extremist attitude: investigations are underway against three students at a police school in the Ore Mountains.
The Chemnitz Criminal Investigation Department is investigating three trainees from the Saxony police because of a possible right-wing extremist attitude and because of statements related to National Socialism. The background was an internal tip from witnesses from the police school in Schneeberg in the Ore Mountains, the university announced on Friday. Two 20-year-olds and a 22-year-old man became conspicuous.
Police chief Carsten Kaempf said there was no tolerance whatsoever for police officers who glorified National Socialist ideas. If the allegations are confirmed after the investigation has been completed, the three would have to assume full responsibility. There is no place for right-wing ideas in the Saxon police force.
The three young men began a two-and-a-half-year apprenticeship at the police college in September 2021. They are currently no longer allowed to carry out official business and for the time being no longer participate in training, they are threatened with dismissal.
