Only discovered late: NPD man temporarily guards the Saxon Office for the Protection of the Constitution

According to a report, the Saxon Office for the Protection of the Constitution employed an NPD politician as a porter for several weeks. He is said to have checked witnesses and victims of right-wing extremist crimes. The new Minister of the Interior announces a draft law for better identity checks.

The access to the building of the Saxon Office for the Protection of the Constitution and the extremism defense center of the LKA has been guarded for weeks by a well-known right-wing extremist. This is reported by the "Bild" newspaper, citing the Ministry of the Interior. Accordingly, the former Dresden NPD city councilor Hartmut Krien was employed as a porter from March to mid-May. Only on May 10 did someone recognize him. From now on he is no longer allowed to work there, it is said.

According to the "Bild" report, the 66-year-old Krien, who is employed by a private security service, was only checked by police computer with his consent. Since he was not delinquent, there were no hits and he was used. "There was no regular request from the Office for the Protection of the Constitution because such a request is not permitted under the trade regulations," an Interior Ministry spokesman told the newspaper.

The new Saxon Interior Minister Armin Schuster from the CDU announced that he wanted to change this with a draft law. "People who work for the NPD should not be hired by the police authorities in the security industry," he said.

From 2004 to 2019, Krien sat on the Dresden City Council for the far-right NPD. In the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, he is listed in 2019 and 2020 as the head of the "Communal Political Association of the NPD". According to the report, he was also responsible at the gate for checking witnesses and victims of right-wing extremist crimes who had to register for their entry.

In its current annual report 2021, the State Office for the Protection of the Constitution in Saxony continues to rate right-wing extremism as the greatest danger to society. There, the scene is certified as having a "high speed of reaction and mobilization". In addition, further radicalization can be observed, said the head of the authorities, Dirk-Martin Christian, in Dresden. "Right-wing extremists are increasingly reinforcing each other's convictions in closed chat groups on social media and developing fantasies of revolution and conspiracies there," says the report. In addition, the inhibition threshold to use violence decreases.

The number of right-wing extremists in Saxony is given in the report as 4,350, which is below the previous year's figure of 4,800. The decline is attributed to the fact that the "wing" in the AfD can no longer be included in the report after a court ruling. With the "Free Saxony" and Pegida, however, two other fields of activity for the protection of the constitution in Saxony were added.
