Weidel possible offense against the party law


Following dubious campaign donations from Switzerland to the AfD, the public prosecutor’s office in Constance is now officially investigating parliamentary party leader Alice Weidel. There were initial suspicions of a violation of the party law.

This informed the prosecutor on Tuesday. The investigation is now directed against a total of four people – against Weidel and since last week against three members of their AfD district association Bodenseekreis.

Because of the immunity of Deputy Weidel, the prosecution had to send a letter to the Bundestag and wait for the expiry of a 48-hour period.

The AfD had confirmed that last year about 130,000 euros were transferred from a Swiss pharmaceutical company to the AfD district association of Lake Constance. The intended purpose was stated as: „campaign donation Alice Weidel“. The money was said to be repaid this spring. Donations of non-EU citizens to German parties are illegal.
