Germany close to ban on far-right party

BERLIN (AP) — German security officials are moving toward a new attempt to ban the country's only significant far-right party, after meticulously collecting new evidence in an effort to avoid the debacle when they tried to ban it in 2003.

The interior ministers of Germany's 16 states are expected to recommend Wednesday evening pursuing a new ban of the National Democratic Party on allegations it promotes a racist, xenophobic, and anti-Semitic agenda in violation of the country's constitution.

In 2003 the country's Federal Constitutional Court rejected the attempt after it turned out paid government informants within the party were partially responsible for the evidence being used.

This time officials say almost all of the information is public record, like details from the NPD's own literature, Internet postings, and documented criminal activities.
