Members of the far-right NPD have been allowed to tour a refugee center in northeastern Germany, despite a previous ban. Their mainstream colleagues decried the trip as propaganda.
The five NPD politicians visited the facility on Monday in their capacity as members of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern state parliament.
The NPD was only allowed to visit the home after winning a court injunction, which overturned the earlier ban by state authorities. The officials had claimed that such a visit would disturb "peaceful coexistence."
