German prosecutors charged a right-wing group with terrorism offenses, officials confirmed on Tuesday.
Members of Revolution Chemnitz were alleged to have the formed the group in September with the intention of planning and carrying out terror attacks.
Members of the group had allegedly planned to orchestrate a civil-war-like rebellion in Berlin on October 2, 2018. Prosecutors based their charges partly on the use of chat logs found on the defendants’ mobile phones.
Eight alleged members are being held in pre-trial custody and known to police as leaders in the right-wing extremist scene in the eastern city of Chemnitz, which was the scene of anti-immigrant protests last year.
The trial is expected to begin in the fall before the Higher Regional Court of Dresden.
