  • The Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution is the Federal Republic of Germany's domestic security agency. Together with the Landesämter für Verfassungsschutz at the state level, it is tasked with intelligence-gathering on threats concerning the democratic order, the existence and security of the federation or one of its states, and the peaceful coexistence of peoples; with counter-intelligence; and with protective security and counter-sabotage. The BfV reports to the Federal Ministry of the Interior. From 2000 to July 2012, Heinz Fromm served as its president until his resignation in the wake of a scandal regarding the destruction of files related to the National Socialist Underground, a right-wing terror group. Since 1 August 2012, the agency has been headed by Hans-Georg Maaßen.
