Global Analysis from the European Perspective. Preparing for the world of tomorrow

German domestic intelligence head relieved of duties, but promoted

Hans-Georg Maassen is changing jobs. The move is a compromise between Social Democrats, who demanded Maassen’s removal, and conservative Interior Minister Horst Seehofer. Hans-Georg Maassen, the under-fire head of the domestic intelligence agency — formally known as the “Office for the Protection of the Constitution” (BfV) — will be stripped of his current job but gain a theoretically better one as a deputy head of the interior ministry.
