German CDU MP's - Speak on Damian Green arrest.

German CDU MPs released this statement.

We are deeply shocked by the arrest of an opposition Member of Parliament in Britain and the use of counter-terrorism police in doing so. Damian Green is a colleague and friend of the German CDU.

As fellow Members of the German Bundestag and the European Parliament, we believe the role of Members of Parliament in carrying out their duties in a democracy must be vigorously upheld and defended.

Britain’s democracy and Parliament is admired across the world. We are astonished that an opposition member can be arrested in this way, and that the British police can enter the British Parliament to search an MP’s office without a warrant.

In Germany such a procedure would be unacceptable. As members of Parliament in a fellow democracy, we express our strong support for Mr Green in this ordeal and his right to do the job he was elected to do.

Signed: Dr Günter Krings MP, Legal Counsel of the CDU/CSU Parliamentary Group in the Bundestag, Katherina Reiche MP, Deputy Leader, CDU/CSU Parliamentary Group in the Bundestag, Dr Ole Schroeder MP, Member of the Legal Committee of the Bundestag and the Committee for the Scrutiny of Elections, Parliamentary Affairs and Immunity, Peter Altmaier MP, Parliamentary State Secretary, Ministry of the Interior Steffen Kampeter MP, Jens Spahn MP, Elmar Brok MEP, Klaus-Heiner Lehne MEP.

Not a peep out of New Labour Pravda, sorry I meant of course the BBC on this.
