After a right-wing extremist network in the North Rhine-Westphalian police became known, the SPD interior politician Dirk Wiese criticized State Interior Minister Herbert Reul (CDU).

“The suspected cases and backgrounds must be investigated quickly and comprehensively,” Wiese told the news portal T-Online. In the fight against right-wing extremism, he accused the CDU-led state government of failures.

"While the SPD in North Rhine-Westphalia already presented a master plan at the beginning of this year to effectively combat right-wing extremism in North Rhine-Westphalia, Interior Minister Reul is still without a plan," said Wiese. "There is an urgent need for action on the part of the state government." Konstantin Kuhle, domestic policy spokesman for the FDP parliamentary group, spoke of a "terrifying suspicion" against the police service group in Mülheim an der Ruhr. "The federal and state security authorities have to act even more decisively against right-wing extremists in their own ranks," Kuhle told T-Online. The conference of interior ministers must advise how the "loyalty to the constitution" of applicants for the public service can be better checked.
