EInvestigative authorities in Lower Saxony are once again asking the population for information about three former members of the left-wing terrorist Red Army Faction (RAF). The Verden public prosecutor's office and the State Criminal Police Office addressed the public in a statement on Friday. The accused are Ernst-Volker Staub, Daniela Marie Luise Klette and Burkhard Garweg.

Those wanted are said to have been living underground since the 1990s. The investigators assume that the group was in Germany between 1999 and 2016. Twelve robbery crimes are attributed to the accused during this time. Among other things, they are said to have tried to rob a cash-in-transit truck in Stuhr near Bremen, as DNA evidence showed. One of the wanted people is said to have further contacts in Germany.

The group is assigned to the so-called third generation of the RAF. The RAF generation is accused, among other things, of the murders of Deutsche Bank boss Alfred Herrhausen in 1989 and of Treuhand boss Detlev Karsten Rohwedder in 1991. The RAF was disbanded in 1998.
