Authorities in Bavaria, Germany, see no reason to change security plans for the upcoming G7 summit after police documents about summit security were leaked on the same website in 2015.
“We are working on the assumption that this incident is not necessary for the process that is about to occur,” Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Hermann said on Sunday. “We do a lot of things the same way we did seven years ago, but the police also do a lot of things differently,” he explained. Based on what was leaked, no immediate conclusions can be reached on what the police will do in the coming days.
The heads of state and government of Germany, France, Italy, the United Kingdom, Canada, Japan and the United States will settle in Schloss Elmau from June 26-28. The castle in southern Germany was also the site of the G7 summit in 2015.
Security details of that summit were leaked on Sunday on a site described by German intelligence as the far left. It was not clear who published the information, but several security sources confirmed to the German News Agency (dpa) the authenticity of the documents. Hermann confirmed that the police are investigating the matter.
