In the early morning hours of 7 December 2022, police officers arrested more than 100 members of the far-right Reichsburger – Citizens of the Reich – movement, on charges of plotting to overthrow the government and install a monarch who is a member of a German royal family. The Federal Public Prosecutor General stated that the morning raids occurred in the capital Berlin, Frankfurt and 11 other cities. Individuals taken under arrest include foreign nationals. Prosecutors are designating the raids as anti-terror efforts, as another Reichsburger group was allegedly plotting to kidnap Germany’s health minister.
