German authorities have arrested a famous chef amid an attempt by far-right elements to overthrow the country, but his relationship with a footballer from Spanish club Real Madrid came as a surprise.
The famous chef is Frank Hebner, 62, father of the girlfriend of Austrian Real Madrid star David Alaba, according to the British network Sky News.
Hebner was arrested during a raid on a winter resort in the Austrian city of Kitzbühel, where he owns a hotel.
He ran the canteens of the Reich.
The Austrian media reported that the task of the cook, in the event of a successful coup attempt, is to take over “the canteens of the German Reich and the supply of food to the troops.”
Frank Hebner has worked as a chef in the world’s most famous 5-star hotels, specializing in European and Asian cuisine.
Attempted coup d’état .. and large-scale operations
Two days ago, the German authorities announced that a movement calling itself the “Reich Citizens’ Movement” intended to overthrow the German government.
3,000 security personnel participated in large-scale operations against the followers of this movement, affecting 130 settlements in 11 of the 16 German states.
Some members of the group reject the post-World War II German constitution that toppled the Nazis and call for the overthrow of the government.
Authorities said the movement wanted Prince Henry XIII, whose family once ruled parts of East Germany, to take over.
It is noteworthy that the Reich Movement was founded in 1949, and was banned in 1952, and about 20,000 people belong to it, who infiltrate state institutions, primarily the security and defense services.
This movement possesses a large quantity of weapons and explosives and has the ability to produce explosive devices, according to police traces, and conducts numerous operations to steal weapons from government warehouses.
So far, the authorities are trying to withdraw ownership of weapons from “citizens of the Reich” wherever it is legally possible.
Previously, the Reich carried out an assassination attempt on the German Minister of Health, and the authorities thwarted other operations.
