INU - Germany’s Prosecution Office has filed an Indictment against a terrorist dispatched by the Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence for reconnaissance of a possible terrorist attack against a German politician. According to German Channel One TV, Reinhold Robbe, a Social Democratic Party (SPD) Politician and former President of the German-Israeli Society (DIG), was spied as a possible target for an assassination attempt by the Iranian regime’s secret service.

According to the Indictment, the (German) Federal Prosecutor's Office believes that the purpose of the espionage has been to investigate the potential targets for a possible assassination attempt. A Pakistani, accused of spying for the Iranian Intelligence Ministry, in his reconnaissance operation, has created a movement profile of the SPD politician, Mr. Robbe. This is seen as a clear indication of an assassination attempt. This is also indicated by the fact that the suspect has observed the German-Israeli Society building and explored Mr. Robbe’s transport route from his Berlin apartment to the headquarters of the DIG in Berlin-Mitte. He is also said to have explored alternative routes to the headquarters, German TV reported.

The espionage against the longtime former Bundestag deputy, Reinhold Robbe, is the first known case in which a German politician was the target of an operation for possible assassination attempt by the Iranian regime’s secret service, according to the report.
