Bautzen / Plauen (dpa) – The extreme right-wing small party III. Road is allowed to demonstrate on Saturday in Plauen, Saxony, with a maximum of 125 participants. That was decided by the Saxon Higher Administrative Court (OVG) in Bautzen.

It was a complaint by the party against a collective ban. This was imposed by the responsible Vogtlandkreis and initially confirmed by the Chemnitz Administrative Court. (Ref .: 6 B 220/21)

From the point of view of the Higher Administrative Court, the Vogtlandkreis could not justify why the party could not hold a meeting in accordance with the Corona rules. There is no proof that the demo registration is unreliable. The forecast of the administrative judge that several hundred participants may be expected has not been proven either. The III. Weg had confirmed “that he was not advertising nationwide”.
