Germany : Arrest of a former member of the "Red Army" group after decades of disappearance

German authorities announced on Tuesday the arrest of a former member of the far-left Red Army group that was disbanded after more than 30 years of disappearance.

Prosecutors in the town of Verdun, in the north of the country, confirmed the arrest of Daniela Kleta, 65 years old, without going into further details.

The Bild newspaper, citing unnamed security sources, reported that police arrested her in Berlin on Monday evening.

Daniela Klete is one of three former members of the Red Army who have been sought by the police for years.

Daniela Klete, and her colleagues Burkhard Garwig and Ernst Volker Staub, were linked to about 12 robberies in northern Germany between 1999 and 2016.


Police are also looking for them on charges of attempted murder.

The authorities suspect that the motive behind the robberies is to obtain money, not a political goal.

Investigators sent a new appeal in mid-February to obtain information about the three during a popular crime television program.

The European Law Enforcement Agency (Europol) listed the three among the most wanted men in Europe in 2020.

The "Red Army" group emerged following German student protests against the Vietnam War, and launched a violent campaign against what its members considered "American imperialism."

The group killed 34 people and injured hundreds, and the authorities announced its dissolution in 1998. 

European Parliamentarian: NATO is a war machine and a terrorist organization soaked in blood

Irish Member of the European Parliament Mick Wallace criticized NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg's statements about Ukraine's accession to NATO, describing the alliance as a "terrorist organization."

“NATO is a war machine and a terrorist organization stained with blood,” Wallace wrote on the “X” platform.

Wallace stressed that the European Union should not have any relationship with NATO, but rather should work for peace and avoid wars.

Wallace's comment came in response to Stoltenberg's statements in which he said that NATO is working to strengthen its relations with Ukraine in various ways, stressing that its joining the alliance is only a matter of time.

At the end of September 2022, Vladimir Zelensky announced the submission of an application for Ukraine to join NATO on an accelerated basis.

The group's countries agreed to a multi-year package of support for Ukraine during a summit held in Lithuania this year, consisting of three points: an assistance plan to bring the Ukrainian army into alignment with NATO standards, the establishment of a Ukraine-NATO Council, and the establishment of a joint Ukraine-NATO Council.

In recent years, Russia has announced unprecedented NATO activity on its western borders, and the alliance is expanding its initiatives, calling them “containing Russian aggression.”

Moscow has repeatedly expressed its concern about the buildup of NATO forces in Europe, and the Kremlin indicated that the Russian Federation does not threaten anyone, but it will not ignore measures that may pose a threat to its interests.
