The judiciary in Baden-Württemberg is being strengthened with a new State Security Senate. One reason: more and more Reichsbürger procedures.
The Higher Regional Court (OLG) Stuttgart has also received an additional state security senate due to an increasing number of Reichsbürger cases. The court confirmed corresponding research from star and RTL. With five judge positions and a new Senate, “an additional State Security Senate could be set up, also in view of the recent increase in cases with references to the Reich citizen scene,” said a justice spokeswoman.
The OLG is one of three for the suspected terrorist group around Henry XIII. Prince Reuss competent courts. In addition, the OLG recently made judgments in several Reichsbürger cases that made headlines across the country. The new positions are part of the 2023/2024 double budget of the state of Baden-Württemberg. According to court information, the new Senate has already been formed. The Federal Prosecutor General’s indictment against the group around Prince Reuss is the first first-instance detention matter that he is dealing with.
