In connection with the attack in New Zealand, the Federal Office for Defense of the Constitution and the fight against terrorism (BVT) is conducting a house search on Monday. Martin Sellner, Speaker for the right "Austrian Identity Movement" (IBÖ). The reason was a financial donation of Christchurch's alleged murderer, who worked on the Tuesday of the APA prosecutor Graz.

"A preliminary investigation is pending with us," explained the authorities spokesman Hansjörg BacherWhy did the house search IBÖ spokesman on behalf of the prosecutor Graz. The gift in Amount of about 1,500 eurostherefore, already made in early 2018, it was therefore noted in recent inquiries into suspicion of Sellner's financial offenses, because it was higher than other donations.

"Now she has had a face," said Bacher, because the name that arose on the gift corresponds to the name of the very distant Australian who killed 50 people in two mosques in Christchurch. "That was vital for us to investigate." Initial fires from abroad or another authority did not exist for the housing search, the authorities spokesman said on request.

A data carrier secured

According to Bacher data carriers were secured in the raid. The investigation is currently underway on suspicion of being part of a terrorist group, because "most likely to be suspicious," said the authority's spokesperson. If the facts are explained, of course, this could change.

The seller acknowledged Monday evening, about 15 minutes, distributed via social media video to receive a “disproportionate donation” from an email address in the right-wing killer. For the donation, he also thanked him via e-mail: "Everyone who supports me will receive a thank you email."

The amount of the gift that he would transfer to a charitable organization, with the terrorist attack, he had nothing to do, said the spokesman for the “identities”. He had no connection with the 28-year-old murderer and was never met. Sellner is convinced that Australia wants him to "get involved with the issue".

The SPÖ accused the government of lack of commitment. NEOS hopes in this respect for a statement from the Internal Minister Herbert Kickl Thursday at the National Council – as well as the head of club NOW Bruno Rossmann,

The "Identities" are classified by Austrian Resistance Documentation Archive (DÖW) as right-wing extremists.
