Skeletons in the Closet

How Germany supports international war criminals

In 2006, a Congolese Hutu rebel chief was arrested in Germany. He had been able to direct a war of extermination in his own country from the comfort of his Mannheim living room.

It was Markus Frenzel’s astonishing TV coverage on "FAKT" that led to the rebel chief’s arrest; but this was by no means an isolated case. Frenzel subsequently discovered that Germany has become a safe haven and hub for international war criminals. Even today, they remain unchallenged despite being on UN blacklists and wanted by Interpol.

In a practice dating back decades, the German Army has trained foreign leaders and influential military personnel. Germany allows the heads of governments in Third World countries to choose whomever they wish to send, even if these countries are run by brutal dictators whose representatives have no intention of pursuing democratic ideology, but are only interested in warmongering.

Frenzel has undertaken a painstaking background investigation and heard at first hand individual stories which reveal the full scope of the activities of these international war criminals and their German intermediaries.
