The German government has announced a series of measures to tackle right-wing extremists, including removing their weapons and ousting them from jobs in public service. Under a plan presented by Interior Minister Nancy Faeser in Berlin, the authorities will also start to target the financing of extremist groups in a more coordinated fashion. ‘We want to dismantle right-wing extremist networks . We will identify and dry up the financial activities of right-wing extremist networks,’ the plan said. Important sources of income for right-wing extremists are said to include festivals, martial arts events and the sale of clothing. In order to make faster progress in removing weapons from right-wing extremists, Faeser said she planned to create a new forum where the domestic intelligence agency, the weapons authorities and the police can exchange information ‘with the involvement of the administrative courts.’
