According to the Federal Intelligence Service (NDB), right-wing and left-wing extremists are increasingly active in Switzerland. The FIS therefore wants to be given more precise instruments to monitor them. Defense Minister Viola Amherd (59) announced to the media on Thursday that the Federal Council had opened the consultation on the revision of the Intelligence Service Act.

Three years ago, the FIS status report stated that the development of violent extremism was extremely worrying. At the time, Federal Councilor Amherd considered wiretapping potentially violent extremists. A consultation draft was originally planned for summer 2020.
