"Testify" called Interior Senator Michael Neumann (SPD) on Monday the presentation of the current report on the protection of the constitution. And the largest space this time took the left-wing extremist-motivated crimes. They increased last year: in 2013, police recorded 297 crimes, compared with 138 the previous year. The number of violent crimes recorded was 187, about three times as high as in 2012.
