Following the scandal of the xenophobic killings in Germany between 2000 and 2007, perpetrated by 3 members of the Neo-Nazi organization "National Socialist Underground" (NSU), where 10 people were murdered, the radical group continues to be in the spotlight due to unsolved accusations of state complicity. This is due to the involvement of police informants, who were protected by the state and infiltrated into neo-Nazi groups.
Specifically, the name of the Intelligence Officer Andreas Temme, working for the branch of the Constitutional Protection Office in Kassel and in charge of several informants, is mentioned.
On April 6, 2006, he went to a cybercafé in the city, where a few meters away from him and without realizing anything, Halit Yozgat was murdered, the ninth victim of the NSU. Both he and the Institution deny any link to the murder and the organization, even though the evidence in the case pointed somewhere else.
Apparently, these crimes are still far from being fully solved, and strangely enough the Hessian Office for the Protection of the Constitution has blocked certain key documents, particularly until the year 2134.
Since October 2017, the Berlin lawyer Christoph Partsch has been suing this classified case on behalf of the renowned author Dirk Laabs, who tried to clarify why Temme had actually been at the scene of the crime. The corresponding files were systematically retained, classified as "For official use only" or "Secret", basically only those persons who, due to their official function, needed them would be authorized access. The lawyer stated that because of this senseless prolongation, the actual examination of the need for secrecy had never even taken place.
The lawyer's interest goes beyond that murder, he tries to uncover a plot in which 6 more murderers could be involved and the real role of Temme, as the Ceska gun with which the 10 murders were committed could have been used as a weapon of initiation and proof of courage to enter the NSU, escalating the gravity of the case. He asked for access to several files, such as the names of people still alive involved or information about payments made by the State Office for the Protection of the Constitution in the years 1995 - 2015 to informants. The application was rejected, as current or former informants in the state of Hesse could be put at risk.
Partsch has not hesitated to appeal, and although it is to be feared that the Federal Prosecutor's Office will be satisfied with Temme's conviction and will not put a problem with the files remaining closed, the case is not over, and now there is even a lawyer involved.
