After the lifting of immunity: prosecutors searched Gaulands residential building in Potsdam

Now the prosecution is allowed to enforce a search and Seizure warrant against Gauland. It is a matter of the accusation of tax evasion, said a spokeswoman for the authority on Thursday. According to the "Potsdam New messages" at present, the house Gaulands in Potsdam searched.

Weidels immunity has already been lifted.
