“There are links between the Swiss investigations and the investigations being conducted in Germany, about which the Düsseldorf public prosecutor’s office communicated on April 12,” the Swiss federal public prosecutor’s office told the media.

On Friday, the public prosecutor’s office in Düsseldorf, Germany, announced that four minors had been arrested and remanded during the Easter weekend. They are suspected of planning an attack “with an Islamist motive”.

In Switzerland, a 15-year-old Swiss man and a 16-year-old Italian man have been in pre-trial detention since Easter weekend after they were arrested in the northern canton of Schaffhausen. They are suspected of “participation or support in a terrorist organization and preparatory acts with a view to premeditated murder,” the federal prosecutor’s office said. According to the public prosecutor’s office, the investigation concerns “possible plans for attacks with explosives”.

In addition, an 18-year-old Swiss man was arrested in the neighboring canton of Thurgau, the public prosecutor’s office continued. The public prosecutor’s office did not provide the date of the arrest. According to the current state of the investigation, the two minors would have been in contact with the 18-year-old in Schaffhausen.
