Dhe RBB must broadcast a campaign spot of the NPD. That decided on Tuesday evening the Federal Constitutional Court in an express procedure. With a first version of the video, whose radiation the RBB had rejected, the NPD in Karlsruhe had failed yet. As a result, the party changed the movie, but the RBB still saw it as an obvious case of sedition and rejected the broadcast.
The lower courts gave the station right and argued with the political concept of the NPD. The judges in Karlsruhe decided now, for the assessment alone the video was decisive and a sedition was also not evident.
The campaign ad begins with the sentence: "Since the arbitrary opening of the border in 2015 and the uncontrolled mass immigration since then, Germans are becoming victims almost every day." The pictures show an ever faster display of crime scenes and names of victims of violence. On it the establishment of "protection zones", where Germans should feel safe, is promised.
A criminal sedition requires that a part of the population insulted, maliciously scorned or slandered and thereby attacked in his human dignity, said the Federal Constitutional Court. This was not given in the spot.
The RBB had rejected the broadcast of the commercial on April 30 and May 17, 2019, in the designated timeframes, categorizing short film as a "pure blatant violation of the offense of sedition." The Berlin Administrative Court and the Berlin-Brandenburg Higher Administrative Court had upheld this view and rejected the party's request for the protection of express interest.
