Germany's top court rejects bid to ban far-right NPD

KARLSRUHE, Germany, , (Pakistan Point News - APP - 17th Jan, 2017 ) - Germany's highest court Tuesday rejected a bid to ban the far-right National Democratic Party of Germany (NPD), arguing that the xenophobic fringe party does not pose a real threat to the democratic order. "The request has been rejected," said Constitutional Court top judge Andreas Vosskuhle about the bid to ban the party with 6,000 members. He added that "the NPD pursues anti-constitutional goals, but there is currently no concrete evidence of any weight to suggest that it will succeed."
