Wiesbaden (dpa/lhe) - The former Hessian President for the Protection of the Constitution, Roland Desch, will be questioned on Friday (from 9.30 a.m.) in the state parliament's investigative committee about the murder of Kassel's District President Walter Lübcke. Among other things, it is about the question of how dangerous the Office for the Protection of the Constitution had considered the Lübcke murderer Stephan Ernst before his crime. Desch was President of the Office for the Protection of the Constitution from 2010 to 2015. His predecessor, Alexander Eisvogel, testified at an earlier meeting of the investigative committee that he considered Ernst to be "extremely dangerous" in the 2000s.
The state parliament investigation committee was set up in 2020. His task is to work through the role of the Hessian security authorities in the murder case and possible mistakes.
