German Military Accused of ‘Purging’ Populist Supporters

While the German army has long expelled those with neo-Nazi sympathies, there have been recent claims that they are now targetting supporters of the populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) for expulsion as well.

Investigations have alleged that the Bundeswehr have begun broadening the scope of who they consider not fit to serve in the forces which have included “sympathisers of the AfD and the Hungarian premier Viktor Orbán,” Il Giornale reports.
