Among the accused are all five members of the Pro Köln board. In the last four years, they are said to have defrauded the city of a "high five-figure amount", confirmed the spokesman for the state prosecutor's office, Ulrich Bremer. Pro Köln rejects the charges.

Police and the state prosecutor's office are investigating 15 members and sympathisers of the far-right organisation Pro Köln on the charge of organised and professional fraud. From 8 o'clock on Tuesday investigators searched 17 offices and homes of the suspects in Cologne, Leverkusen and Berlin, including the party's central office on the Heumarkt and the Leverkusen lawyer's office of the party leader Markus Beisicht. The investigators searched for documents that confirmed the suspected fraud. The police confiscated computers and written documents, as well as invoice receipts. The material is to be examined within the next few days.

The investigators are examining indications according to which party functionaries and the so-called expert citizens invented several hundred party meetings in order to collect session money. Members of the board receive a flat fee reimbursement of 17.30 euros per meeting; expert citizens receive 36 euros. "Many sessions apparently existed only on paper," reported one investigator.

The investigators confiscated computers, invoicing documents and written statements, which will now be analysed. Interior minister Ralf Jäger (SPD) said to the "Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger": "The fraud charges brought against party members of pro Köln show once again how unscupulously these right-wing extremists want to plunder the democratic lawful state. It seems these psychological firebrands don't even shrink from criminal acts to finance their inhuman and xenophobic incitement to hatred. Pro Köln's attempt to avoid the stamp of anti-constitutionality at any price has failed."

The Interior Minister sounds like he's really concerned with the unbiased, impartial administration of justice, doesn't he?

Is this part of a Europe-wide crackdown on the Counterjihad?

The EU has committed fraud on a scale that is astronomic. How cone they are not being arrested?
