World Bulletin/News Desk

German domestic intelligence, the Federal Agency for the Protection of the Constitution, and the Sachsen (Saxony) Department of State, had been aware of the neo-Nazi National Socialist Underground (NSU) terrorist organization prior to their involvement in murders.

A report in German media has indicated that the intelligence agency mentioned the NSU in a secret document dated April, 28 2000. The document expressed that the three members of the NSU “distributed their tasks in pursuing a terrorist group strategy for common goals.”

The document, which was sent to the Interior Minister of the State of Saxony at the time, Klaus Hardraht, and other responsible persons, cautioned against the NSU.

The document clearly specified that the objectives of the group included efforts that were severe criminal offenses against a free democratic order.  

The NSU is alleged to have carried out the murders of the eight Turks, a Greek and a policewoman over a period from 2000 to 2007, and to have robbed 15 banks.
