The barrel with the documents had apparently been underground for decades. Samples from it were sent to forensic laboratories for examination.
“After an initial assessment of the found written material, a reference to the nationwide terrorist group RAF cannot be ruled out,” explained the LKA. This is now being investigated by LKA experts.
Due to the age of the discovered objects, however, the police did not assume that there would be any evidence of the whereabouts of the wanted ex-RAF terrorists Ernst Volker Staub, Burkhard Garweg and Daniela Klette.
The authorities assume that the trio wanted to raise money for a life in illegality by robbery.
The RAF declared itself dissolved in 1998. In the previous decades, the group had committed a series of bloody acts, including the assassination of Federal Prosecutor Siegfried Buback and the kidnapping and murder of employer president Hanns-Martin Schleyer in 1977 and the fatal bomb attack on Deutsche Bank boss Alfred Herrhausen in 1989.
