Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thegatewaypundit.com: “AfD Wins in Court: German Secret Police No Longer Allowed to Monitor or Call Party "Suspect"”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The secret political police “may not term the plaintiff a “suspect”, surveil or monitor them, or make any public announcement to this effect”, the verdict read.

AfD chairman Jörg Meuthen commented: “Avanti Dilettanti! Another complete mess-up for (Verfassungsschutz Director Thomas) Haldenwang’s amateur hour! A secret service that can’t keep a secret issues major pronouncements that are struck down in court less than 48 hours later. How long is Haldenwang going to hang on to his job?”

Alice Weidel, AfD co-chair in the Bundestag, commented: “This is a major setback for the Verfassungsschutz‘s dirty PR campaign.

I wonder if the retraction will be as widely publicized as the announcement of the surveillance” of the AfD, Weidel wrote on Twitter.
