The Province (Vancouver, B.C.) Wednesday, Dec. 23, 1992 GERMANS BAN THIRD NEO-NAZI GROUP United Press International BERLIN - A third neo-Nazi group has been banned as part of a broadening German government crackdown on right-wing extremist groups. "This is meant as a blunt warning to extremism," said Interior Minister Rudolf Seiters yesterday. Seiters said the National Offensive was an "aggressive neo-Nazi organization" responsible for agitating against foreigners, Jews, and the State of Israel. He said banning of the National Offensive, along with earlier bannings of neo-Nazi groups, showed the state would not allow extremists to "carry out their disgraceful work." Police launched immediate searches of homes and offices belonging to the 140 National Offensive members in seven German states, confiscating files and other evidence. Under currents [sic] laws, all files, propaganda material and money in bank accounts belonging to the group may be confiscated. The National Offensive is the third rightist group to be banned in the past four weeks in Germany as part of tougher government response to right-wing violence. Seiters banned the Nationalist Front last month.
