Strangers have threatened Bodo Ramelow with murder. It is not the first time that the Thuringian Prime Minister has received such messages.
Thuringia’s Prime Minister Bodo Ramelow (left) has received a death threat with references to the Nazi concentration camps Auschwitz and Dachau and the gas chambers. He reported that the national police station had been called in, Ramelow said Wednesday when asked in Erfurt.
The letter, which is available for the German news agency, contains wild threats, insults, insults and Nazi allusions in poetry. It was not addressed to the State Chancellery, but to the regional office of the left and personally to Ramelow. He belittles Ramelow, but also politicians in general.
Not the first death threat
The head of the government of Thuringia had been threatened with death several times. In early November, strangers placed a burial candle in front of Ramelow’s house and called for a demonstration of the “lateral thinking” movement in Leipzig.
Ramelow said his home address had previously been distributed to a “lateral thinking” group on a courier service. “Now we are learning that the privacy of politicians is no longer respected,” the left-wing politician had stated.
