NSA Spying Scandal: How Should German Authorities Respond? Interview with Hans-Georg Maassen, President of BfV, the German Domestic Intelligence Service.
Over two years after the NSA affair, the head of Germany’s foreign intelligence agency is leaving his post. Investigative journalist Hans Leyendecker tells DW it’s because he didn’t know whom his staff were spying on.
Germany's justice minister has suggested the domestic intelligence service monitor and develop a case against the AfD party. The anti-mass-immigration party is polling 10 percent support.
Germany's domestic intelligence chief has defended charges against Netzpolitik reporters to "ensure the fight against extremism and terrorism." Netzpolitik was to be investigated for publishing "classified" documents.
The most recent BND spy scandal is symptomatic of the disrespectful way the government deals with Parliament. It's time to revamp the way the intelligence services are monitored, writes DW's Marcel Fürstenau.
