It is the first time that a minister has stepped down due to animal welfare undercover material!!





The pressure on Christina Schulze- Föcking (Christian Democrat Union, CDU ) has become too big in the end.

The North Rhine Westphalia Agriculture and Environment Minister has been under attack for months. When the opposition is about to push through a committee of inquiry, she gives up. On Tuesday (15.05.2018) she declares her resignation.


Due to undercover shots courageous animal rights activists in the domestic pigsty operation of the Christian Democrat, she stood for months in the criticism.

Shortly after assuming office, Schulze Föcking was confronted with video footage from the stables of the family business in “Stern TV”. There were pictures of injured animals: pigs with inflamed joints, purulent bumps and open wounds.

Schulze- Föcking does not comment on the allegations that have accompanied her since the beginning of her term in office.

Not a word on issues of animal husbandry in the domestic fattening, or the alleged “hacker attack” on her television. “I stand by all content-related decisions that I have made in this office,” she says only. (In the past week it was announced that the so called hacker attack was due to an operating error of the WLAN device by Christina Schulze-Föckings!!!)

“The price of the political office is too high ”

As a reason for her resignation Schulze Föcking called instead hostility in the network. She has experienced threats in the past months and weeks, “which I never thought possible and which have far exceeded the measure of the humanly reasonable,” she says visibly moved.

“The price of my political office for my family is too high.”!!
Schulze- Föcking now apparently wants to remain as a Member of Parliament. Who their successor is, is still unknown. Prime Minister of the State of North Rhine Westphalia Armin Laschet (CDU) did not comment on this.

No committee of inquiry at the moment

MPs from the Social Democratic Party and the Greens were dissatisfied with the minister’s statement. However, the two groups postponed the decision on a committee of inquiry. After the resignation of the Minister, the Prime Minister of North Rhine Westphalia Laschet should have the opportunity to answer the many unanswered questions. He would have the opportunity on Wednesday (16.05.2018) at a question time in the state parliament.

It may be the first time that a minister has stepped down due to animal welfare undercover material and subsequent pressure from the animal welfare movement!
However, the government has until now the scandal downplayed!!

Short Comment: The only moment when such a minister will be nice to me is when she resigns.


Venus, with my best regards to all
