Klette arrest: Another person caught is not an RAF terrorist

As of: February 28, 2024 10:42 a.m

Yesterday, the ex-RAF terrorist Klette was arrested in Berlin – and another person was caught. But according to the LKA, this is not another ex-terrorist wanted.

After the second arrest in the case of ex-RAF terrorist Daniela Klette, the suspect was released. As the State Criminal Police Office in Hanover announced, he is undoubtedly neither Burkhard Garweg nor Ernst-Volker Staub, the other two fugitive criminals from this connection.

The search for Garweg and Staub continues.

Decades-long manhunt

Shortly after Klette’s arrest yesterday, investigators in Berlin arrested another person, according to the LKA. It is a man in the “desired age group,” said LKA President Friedo de Vries. The Verden public prosecutor’s office and the State Criminal Police Office have been searching for the former RAF terrorists of the so-called third RAF generation for decades.

Recently, a man was taken off a train at Wuppertal Central Station and arrested because an eyewitness mistook him for dust. However, this suspicion was not confirmed.

Attempted murder and robbery

Burdock, Staub and Garweg are accused, among other things, of attempted murder and a series of aggravated robberies. The three had already gone into hiding in the 1990s. DNA evidence led investigators to the conclusion that they could be responsible for robberies of cash transport and supermarkets between 1999 and 2016.

Crime scenes included Osnabrück, Wolfsburg and Stuhr in Lower Saxony as well as Hagen and Bochum-Wattenscheid in North Rhine-Westphalia.

The public prosecutor’s office assumes that the attacks were not politically motivated. The accused are said to have committed the crimes in order to get money.

Long-standing terrorist group

The left-wing extremist organization Red Army Faction (RAF) was considered the epitome of terrorism in the Federal Republic for decades. In total, the RAF murdered more than 30 people and more than 200 were injured. The RAF disbanded in 1998.

Dust, burdock and Garweg are assigned to the so-called third RAF generation. Representatives of the generation are said to have killed the then head of Deutsche Bank, Alfred Herrhausen, and the head of the Treuhand, Detlev Karsten Rohwedder.
