Far-right German arrested in Hungary for ‘selling guns to use against migrants’

A German far-Right activist was arrested in Hungary on Wednesday on suspicion of illegally selling guns over the internet, marketing them as “migrant deterrents”.

Mario Rönsch was held on a European extradition warrant issued by his native Germany. He has been on the run from the German authorities since 2016.

He is accused of running a website called Migrant Deterrent, which sold more than €100,000 (£87,000) worth of unlicensed weapons to customers in countries across Europe under the slogan: “Simple, fast and discreet: that’s the mantra of Migrant Deterrent”.
