THOUSANDS of German police plan to hunt down lockdown rule-breakers, according to Interior Minister Horst Seehofer.
In an announcement on Thursday, October 29, it was confirmed that since the stricter lockdown measures were put in place, the German government were making plans to deploy THOUSANDS of its federal police officers across the country to enforce them.
The radical measures will start on Monday, November 2, after Chancellor Angela Merkel and Germany’s state leaders agreed on Wednesday, October 28 that in order to stop the further spread, deaths and infections of the coronavirus, an emergency month-long lockdown, including closing restaurants, gyms and theatres, was needed.
Seehofer said: “Running checks will be crucial to ensure the success of the new measures.
“In coordination with the states, federal police will deploy thousands of officers.”
Some have likeness this announcement to the country’s past experience of Communist East Germany and Hitler’s Nazis, with its capital, Berlin, even going so far as to enlist the help of 500 federal police officers BEFORE the new measures were announced.
