German media treason probe sparks major political rift

German Justice Minister Heiko Maas arrives for a cabinet meeting at the Chancellery in Berlin, on June 17, 2015A clash between Germany’s chief prosecutor and the justice minister burst into the open Tuesday, sparked by a treason probe into a blog that had published classified security agency files.

The case centres on the Netzpolitik.org (Net politics) blog, which earlier this year published documents on plans by Germany’s domestic security agency to expand its Internet surveillance.
