The Fight against the Far Right: Politicians Look to Ban the NPD Party

Kiron KreuterDecember 16, 2011

New details continue to emerge about a series of racially motivated murders by a group of neo-Nazis in Germany - including a number of indications that officials in the far-right National Democratic Party (NPD) may also have been involved.

That has prompted state interior ministers around Germany to launch a second attempt at banning the party. Critics fear that it'll be unsuccessful and the NPD will emerge triumphant.
