The number of politically motivated crimes in Germany rose significantly last year to 55,048 offenses which is an increase by more than 23% compared to the year before, Germany's top security official said Tuesday. A significant proportion of these “more diverse and diffuse” offenses were committed in connection with the coronavirus restrictions and the 2021 federal election in Germany.
