Federazione Anarchica Informale
December 9, 2011 by staff
Federazione Anarchica Informale, An anarchist group claimed responsibility for a letter bomb sent to Deutsche Bank AG Chief Executive Officer Josef Ackermann and may have addressed two more explosive packages to other banks.
Investigators found a letter in Italian by a group that calls itself Federazione Anarchica Informale, Italian for “informal anarchistic federation.” The FAI has claimed responsibility for several attacks in recent years, including a 2003 letter bomb sent to the European Central Bank, state police and Frankfurt prosecutors said in a joint statement.
“The authors speak of three explosions against ‘banks, bankers, ticks and blood-suckers,’” police said in the statement. “It has to be assumed that another two letter bombs may have been sent.”
Ackermann, who will step down as CEO of Germany’s biggest lender in May, has led Deutsche Bank since 2002. Former Deutsche Bank CEO Alfred Herrhausen was killed by the left-wing terrorist organization Red Army Faction in 1989.
Police said earlier today that a “functional letter bomb” was intercepted at the German lender’s headquarters in Frankfurt yesterday. The package contained an explosive device. Frankfurt prosecutors are investigating.
The explosive was a “very dangerous bomb,” Siegfried Wilhelm, a spokesman for the Hesse state bureau of investigation said in an interview earlier today. Deutsche Bank said yesterday a “suspicious package” was discovered in the bank’s offices.
