Since May 2020 there have been 42 criminal charges against Hildmann from all over Germany, which were initially processed by the Cottbus public prosecutor. It was mainly about statements Hildmann made on social networks.
A number of the reported statements were classified as criminally relevant. The State Criminal Police Office had secured the statements on which the reports were based, and then police evaluations were carried out by September 2020.
In September 2020, the attorneys general of both countries agreed that the proceedings against Hildmann should be brought together in Berlin because of the factual context.

There has already been investigated for “presence offenses”, such as crimes committed by Hildmann against him at demonstrations. Initially, the submission of the proceedings was not communicated publicly in order not to publish the intensification of the investigation against Hildmann associated with it. According to Hoffmann, all future reports against Hildmann will also be processed in Berlin.
