The newly-formed Austrian government is a coalition between the ÖVP (Österreichische Volkspartei, Austrian People’s Party) and the FPÖ (Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs, Austrian Freedom Party). Heinz-Christian Strache, the leader of the FPÖ, serves as vice-chancellor under Chancellor Sebastian “Boy” Kurz.
On Wednesday evening someone broke into Mr. Strache’s office. The Austrian security and military services checked the office and found two bugs. There is no indication so far as to who may have wanted to wiretap him.
Anton, who translated the video for subtitling, sends these remarks:
Not only did the Left try to stop Strache from gaining power, the Marxist/communist President Alexander van der Bellen forced Strache to make commitments to the EU, against his party’s policy.
How low will the left sink to thwart patriotic conservatives? And when they get there — wire-tap them?
Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:
|The office of Vice-Chancellor Heinz Christian Strache was broken into on Wednesday night.
|According to information obtained by krone.at, the perpetrator or perpetrators
|in Dietrichstein Palace, Minoritenplatz may not have stolen anything.
|Amazingly, a few days earlier security experts had found and removed
|two bugs from Strache’s workplace in his office.
|Now the security services are not ruling out a connection.
|Who was behind this break-in? And who wanted to wiretap the Vice Chancellor?
|These two questions are currently being posed not only by the FPÖ,
|but also by the military intelligence services and investigators of Domestic Security.
|So far it is certain that there are clear signs of a burglary in the FPÖ leader’s office
|in Dietrichstein Palace, but apparently nothing was stolen.
|Incidentally, the perpetrator almost got caught. Around 7pm,
|the vice-chancellor’s employees heard noises coming from his office.
|When they checked, they noticed someone fleeing through the emergency exit —
|Dietrichstein Palace has an electronic security system.
|Due to a moving operation in the Palace, the doors had been left open for a long time,
|so that gaining surreptitious entrance to the building was possible.
