On Tuesday, the 13th of March, police forces raided four separate buildings after they had been alerted to large deliveries of chemical ‘manure’. Some of the material, there can be no doubt, was supposed to be used to run the illegal canabis farm that they discovered.
A small portion of it, however, went already into the production of erythritol tetranitrate, an explosive compound.
Newspaper Thuringer Allgemeine reports that about 20 kg of chemicals found such as butyric acid, magnesium powder, calcium carbid, sulfour powder were likely meant to be used in the production of bombs.
The raid also discovered at least one alarm pistol.
One of the two suspects was a member of the group Alliance For Civil Courage and Human Rights (German: Bündnis für Zivilcourage und Menschenrechte). In 2016 the group won the “Democracy Award of the Free State of Thuringen” for their alleged work against racism, xenophobia and antisemitism. The prize was an initiative of Birgit Klaubert, Minister of Education of the State Thuringen and member of the openly socialist party LINKE. Alliance For Civil Courage and Human Rights have immediately distanced themselves from the suspect who used to be speaker of the group in the past.
The Office of the Prosecuter in (the city of ) Gera sees “no hint for a political crime”.
