German neo-Nazi crime rate at new high – 27 Mar 2007 – NZ Herald: World / International News

BERLIN – Crimes committed by neo-Nazis and other right-wing extremists in Germany reached their highest level last year since reunification in 1990, a newspaper reported today.

The crime rate rose by 14 per cent to more than 18,000 extremist offences, Tagesspiegel daily said, in an advance release of a story to run on Tuesday.

Of the 18,000 offences, 1100 were acts of violence — an 8 per cent rise from the previous year, it said, citing federal police figures.
