Reservists Association urges better communication

The news of the planning of hundreds of reservists suspected of extremism has brought up the Bundeswehr Reservists Association.

"The reservists' association would like the Bundeswehr to let us know the extremists so that we too can exclude them from our association," said association president Patrick Sensburg of the "Rheinische Post". On Monday, the head of the Military Shield Service, Christof Gramm, reported to the Parliamentary Control Panel that intelligence agencies had discussed over 1.000 suspected extremism cases within the reservists, and that over 800 reservists had been planned out of possible exercises and operations.

Sensburg called for better communication about this. "Often we don't even learn that a uniform was withdrawn from a reservist," he criticized.
