German far-right extremists have been keeping ‘lists of enemies’

Tens of thousands of people were on the radar of right-wing extremist groups in Germany, a parliamentary question revealed. The lists were found during raids, arrests and investigations into prominent far-right attacks.
Right-wing extremist groups in Germany have gathered more than 25,000 people’s contact details in so-called “enemy lists,” German media outlet RedaktionsNetzwerk Deutschland (RND) reported on Monday.
The information was disclosed by the German government in response to an inquiry on the matter made by the Left party in the Bundestag.
Among the information that right-wing extremists have held were names, phone numbers and addresses of people they deemed “enemies.”
The response to the inquiry revealed that the “enemy lists” have been known to authorities since 2011, but the information had not being archived or held in any database of either the federal or state governments.
Only three people on the list of more than 25,000 individuals had been informed that they were being targeted by these groups.
