A German court sentenced a neo-Nazi woman to six years in prison on Friday for planning terror attacks against politicians, mosques, and pro-refugee NGOs in the country, Anadolu Agency reports.

The Higher Regional Court in Munich found Susanne G. guilty of attempting to disturb public peace and making preparations for serious acts of violence in the country by acquiring material to build bombs.

The 55-year-old far-right extremist had sent anonymous threatening letters in recent years to local politicians, Turkish-Muslim organizations, and pro-refugee NGOs in the southern city of Nuremberg, according to the court documents.

At least five of the letters contained bullets and threatened the recipients with death.

The neo-Nazi woman was known to police as a right-wing extremist before her arrest in September 2020, and she has been a follower of The Third Path movement, local media reported.
