Twitter blocks German lawmaker's account after anti-Muslim tweet

Inciting hatred Beatrix von Storch deputy leader of Alternative for Germany, responded to a tweet by Cologne police in which they wished a Happy New Year in Arabic

Von Storch said that the application of the law is clearly unbalanced as well, since it was instituted only to root out certain opinions, not others. "Beatrix von Storch rightfully criticizes that German police tweets in Arabic - and is blocked!" A requirement has now taken effect for "clearly criminal" posts to be deleted or blocked within 24 hours.

Von Storch, who is deputy chairwoman of the AfD's parliamentary group, claimed the "censorship" meant the end of the rule of law in Germany because Facebook had judged her before the legal process had run its course.

AfD leader Alice Weidel voiced support for her party member by criticising the police as well as the social media sites. "The German police now communicate in Arabic, although the official language in our country is German".

Police say both women may be guilty of incitement to hatred.

Ms von Storch declined to comment when asked in a newspaper interview about the police complaint, but she added it was important to speak freely about problems in Germany without censorship and the threat of charges.

Who is Beatrix von Storch?

If she were to be charged and convicted, the granddaughter of Adolf Hitler's finance minister could be fined or go to prison for up to three years. Holding the formal title of Duchess of Oldenburg, the 46-year-old's lineage can be traced back to the royal houses of Denmark and Norway, the deposed royal house of Greece, the deposed imperial Russian family Holstein-Gottorp-Romanov, and Charles, Prince of Wales.
