The alleged ringleaders of a suspected far-right plot to attack the German parliament and overthrow the government will go on trial in Frankfurt starting in May, a court said Tuesday (Apr 2).

Nine suspected members of the “terror group” behind the planned coup will be in the dock from May 21, the court said.

Among the defendants will be the two men alleged to have led the plot – the aristocrat and businessman Prince Heinrich XIII Reuss and a former army officer identified as Ruediger vP.

Birgit Malsack-Winkemann, a judge and former member of parliament for the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, will also stand trial.

The Frankfurt proceedings, which will last until early 2025 at least, are just one part of the sprawling case against the alleged coup plotters.

In all, 26 people are accused of belonging to a nationwide extremist network allegedly led by Reuss, and one woman is alleged to have supported the group.

Nine of the suspected plotters will go on trial in Stuttgart on Apr 29, while a separate trial will open against another eight suspected members of the group in Munich on Jun 18.
