Berlin - The Federal Government's antiaemitism Commissioner Felix Klein has received a letter of agitation for the first time. Klein has been in office since May 2018. According to SPIEGEL information, the letter that he received on June 30 is like a threatening letter that unknown persons sent to the synagogue community in Halle an der Saale in May.

The letter addressed to the antisemitism officer is likely to be directly related to Klein's efforts against racism and antisemitism. "It is precisely the challenges of the corona pandemic that fuel many crude conspiracy myths, which Mr Klein has spoken about several times in the media," his office said. After a "security-related assessment" of the letter, a criminal complaint was filed.
