Shocka! Over 1000 treason complaints against Angela Merkel declared ‘baseless’

The Federal Prosecutor’s Office in Karlsruhe has received over 1,000 complaints for treason against German Chancellor Angela Merkel since 2015, according to a report published Wednesday in the daily Mannheimer Morgen.

Most of the criminal complaints were filed by supporters of the right-wing populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) party.

A spokesperson for the authorites told the paper that all the complaints had “turned out to be baseless.” Prosecutors are required by law to investigate any charges pressed.
