Berlin| The Special Task Force (SEK) in the German city of Frankfurt has been disbanded over right-wing extremist statements in chat groups. A top official has given this information.
The announcement was made on Thursday by Peter Beuth, the Interior Minister of the federal state of Hesse in Frankfurt, reported Xinhua news agency.
“The unacceptable misconduct of several staff members, as well as being turned away by immediate superiors at the Frankfurt SEK, had necessitated its complete dissolution,” Beuth said in a statement published by Hesse’s interior ministry.
On Wednesday, criminal and disciplinary proceedings against 18 active duty officers and a former SEK police officer were made public.
According to the statement, the three men were accused of not interfering as members of the chat groups.
Most of the chat messages are from the years 2016 and 2017.
The statement said some of the messages and photos sent “would raise suspicion that some members of the Frankfurt SEK have a right-wing extremist stance.”
A team of experts will now organize the reorganization of the special unit.
Beuth said a ‘fundamental restart’ is being launched for the SEK unit and an ‘entirely new management culture has to be created’ at the lower and middle supervisory levels.
