The Federal Criminal Investigation Office (Bundeskriminalamt--BKA), with approximately 5,200 agents, operates nationwide from its headquarters in Wiesbaden since 1951. Similar in some respects to the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation, the BKA is a clearinghouse for criminal intelligence records. It provides assistance to Länder in forensic matters, research, and criminal investigations. It is also the national point of contact for the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol). The BKA enters cases only when requested by Land authorities, or in cases involving two or more Laender. The BKA is involved in combating various terrorist gangs, which have plagued the country since the 1960s.
In 2007, BKA President Jörg Ziercke launched a series of conferences to shed light on the history of the BKA, and invited historians to research its origins after the Second World War when many of its leading members were recruited straight from the ranks of the Nazi police and security apparatus - the country had few options as most of those with relevant experience had served under Hitler.
At times, former members of the SS's Totenkopf division held more than two-thirds of all senior positions at the BKA. When the agency began looking into the past of its employees in 1960, about 100 officials, or a quarter of the entire workforce, were investigated.
A 1967 manual reads: "The penchant for an unattached vagrant lifestyle and a pronounced aversion to work are among the special attributes of a gypsy." As much as a decade after the end of the war, the BKA included the prisoner number tattooed on the arm of a presumed delinquent in its search profile.
Dieter Schenk, the former head of the criminal division at the BKA, is sharply critical of the agency, saying that for years it was dominated by "toadyism, wagon wall behavior and an authoritarian style of leadership." These are the secondary bad habits of a bureaucracy that has something to hide, and in which yesterday's and today's officials cannot look each other directly in the eye.

The Larouche printshop in Germany was founded in 1979 by Larouche members Wolfgang Dinges, Helmut Frick, Ulrich von Scheibner, Carla Horn-Friesecke (wife of ex-Larouche leader Uwe Friesecke). They are still working there as "Manager/Director". The ownership and management structure haven't changed much since its creation.
Dinges & Frick also published this book "BKA Vortragsreihe Organisierte Kriminalität in einem Europa durchlässiger Grenzen" in 1991. Source: cached

Their publishing compagny « Editions Alcuin » was created in November 1986, but most of their magazines/ newspapers/ letters were done in Wiesbaden, Germany. (Managers: François Bierre and Laurent Rosenfeld)
By the end of the 1980s, the « Editions Alcuin » took over with a new manager: Christophe Lavernhe (the previous managers had left the Larouche organization) and some publications such as "Fusion" were then produced from France whose circulation improved (approx. 2-3,000 copies distributed in kiosks and about 500 subscribers. At this point more publications were produced in France: books, reports, letters like "Le Commentaire", "Industrie & Environnement", "Alerte Stratégique" or the "Washington Insider."
Through the "Editions Alcuin" the French Larouche organization managed to raise a lot more money (around € 600,000/year) and had a large new office (at rue d’Hauteville, Paris). All the staff of the Larouche activities was located there so Cheminade could run everything by himself.
1991-96: "Fédération pour une Nouvelle Solidarité" (FNS, Federation for a New Solidarity) was created.
After the 1995 presidential elections, their name changed (again) into "Solidarité et Progrès" (29 February 1996: S&P PDF in French, Solidarity and Progress). At that point, Cheminade didn't really want to carry on with the "Editions Alcuin". He wanted every one to be involved in his political movement only.
Approx. 2003, the activities of "Editions Alcuin" were split in two parts : 1) Pierre-Yves Guignard and Emmanuel Grenier were in charge of "Fusion" and the "Industrie & Environnement" newsletter. 2) Eric Sauzè (an old timer) became manager of the "Editions Alcuin" to keep raising money with the "Alerte Stratégique" and the "Washington Insider" newsletters from rich « clients » in Switzerland.
By 2005 Emmanuel Grenier created the "Editions Vernadsky" with three other shareholders to try take over the activities of "Editions Alcuin". A dispute between the Emmanuel Grenier team of "Fusion" and the Larouches led to its termination in 2006 (and departure of most of the editorial team).
At the same time (2006), Cheminade decided to move all his staff away from Paris center to Clichy (suburbs). The Eric Sauzè's "Editions Alcuin" had in 2010 a turnover of € 25,461 with 2 staff and a loss of € 13,132.
From factnet.org forum: new dossiers compiled by Hylozoic Hedgehog:
This series of FactNet posts provides the most detailed look at the early history of the NCLC from LaRouche‟s leaving the SWP in late 1965 to the major faction fight inside the organization in 1971. The files focus most on the early NCLC in two key cities, New York and Philadelphia. However there is some mention of the NCLC group in Baltimore as well as a detailed picture of the early European organization.
As part of the research, LaRouche Planet includes two detailed series of posts by Hylozoic Hedgehog (dubbed “the Old Mole Files” and “the New Mole Files”) based on archival research. Much of the discussion involves the proto-LaRouche grouping and its role in SDS, the Columbia Strike, and the New York Teachers Strike in New York as well as the group's activity in Philadelphia.
Finally, this series of posts can also be read as a continuation of the story of LaRouche and the NCLC begun by the “New Study” also posted on LaRouche Planet which covers LaRouche's history from his early years in New Hampshire and Massachusetts to his relocating to New York City in the early 1950s and his activity inside the Trotskyist Socialist Workers Party (SWP) until he left the SWP in late 1965.
This series of FactNet posts examines the strange saga of Ekkehard Franke-Gricksch‟s publication CODE and its related organization – the Confederation of Organically Thinking Europeans -- and the entire network‟s links to the LaRouche Organization in Germany. The story of CODE is admittedly a complex one and the information posted here is possibly the most detailed exploration of CODE on the Internet, certainly in English. That fact noted, there are still many puzzles, a dilemma in part caused by the sheer difficulty of locating back issues of the publication.
However, one thing is clear: CODE functioned for years partly as a kind of German sister publication to Willis Carto's Spotlight. As readers may know, Willis Carto headed both the Liberty Lobby and the Institute for Historical Review for many years. He currently runs the Barnes Review as well as American Free Press. (For those unfamiliar with Carto and LaRouche, see the chapter “Unity Now” in “New Study” available on LaRouche Planet as well as Dennis King, Lyndon LaRouche and the New American Fascism.)
The ties between the LaRouche Organization in Germany and CODE echo the same alliance developed in the United States between the NCLC and the Liberty Lobby. For this reason alone, the LaRouche links to CODE are worth investigating in a special section even though the topic is not an easy one to research.
Two FactNet researchers, Patentrezept and Hylozoic Hedgehog – both of whom know German – did most of the primary research on CODE with Patentrezept working in Germany and Hylozoic Hedgehog working in the United States. Their work included translations from German sources so that English-language only readers will be able to get a better sense of CODE, Ekkehard Franke-Gricksch, the strange Confederation of Organic Thinkers/Political Lexicon group and their ties to the LaRouche movement as well as to Willis Carto. The work of Patentrezept in particular highlights CODE's initial creation in the late 1970s as a kind of right-wing New Age “environmental” and “health” publication and its strange shift in the early 1980s.
Finally, it must be said that much of what follows does not make for light reading. However for those with a specialist interest in the topic or for the general reader who desires to know more, there is a great deal of valuable information here on the CODE network that would otherwise be very difficult to find.
