> After the German authorities tried to force their censorship on people's
> thoughts and writings worldwide on the Internet, Germany now tries to
> prosecute a person who lives in the Netherlands for the making of the
> left-wing newspaper Radikal.
> In the morning of the 11th of December there was a houseraid in the
> village of Vaals (The Netherlands). In the raid ten local police-officers,
> a high officer from the Maastricht-court, two LKA (Landes Kriminal Ambt)
> German officers and two BKA (Bundes Kriminal Ambt) German officers took
> place.
> The 16 German and Dutch officers forced themselves into the house with the
> help of a lock specialist. The only person at home during the raid only
> noticed it after some time when the room next to her was already being
> searched. The german and dutch police refuged to explain the reason for
> this raid. German autorities refered to the dutch ones for explanations
> and the other way around. It was only after insisting that they explained
> the search warrant came from the german authorities in Karlsruhe. During
> the two hour raid two personal computers, floppy-discs, foto's, a pamflet
> and some Radikal stickers were seized.
> During this whole operation it was not clear against who or what this
> action was aimed and why this house was searched. It only became clear
> after the raid when another person came home from his work and phoned his
> mother in Aachen (Germany). At his mothers house there was also a house
> raid going on, nothing was taken there.
> At this house-raid six LKA officers took part and in a paper they
> declaired to have reasons for this raid because of evidence found in the
> raid in Vaals. "During the raid at the suspect's house evidence was found
> (...) that show the suspect (...) is using the house of his mother as
> well". This evidence consisted of his mother's car papers.
> The declaration paper alsow showed the purpose of the raid: " The search
> for Radikal publications, subscribers lists and financial information".
> The suspect is being charged with the making and distributing of the left
> wing newspaper Radikal. A newspaper that is forbidden only in Germany .
> The supposed involvement with a political magazine, forbidden in Germany,
> apparently is enough for the Dutch authorities to work for the German
> juridical apparatus. This means that the German idea of law and order
> concerning magazines leads to the joint persecution of a Spanish citizen
> living in the Netherlands. Although the magazine is entirely legal in the
> Netherlands.
> The dimension of the German-Dutch cooperation within the framework of the
> new "European Security Policy" is shown here in a very clear way. It shows
> that an attempt is made to completely redefine the persecution, across all
> borders, of politically unwanted people.
