The long legal road to ban Germany's right-wing NPD party
Nearly 14 years after Germany's first attempt to ban the right-wing NPD party failed on legal grounds, the Constitutional Court in Karlsruhe will issue a new ruling on the matter.

Karlsruhe (dpa) - A timeline of key events along the way:

- MARCH 2003: Judges in Karlsruhe drop the first case to ban the NPD, which was pursued by the federal government and both chambers of parliament in the face of rising violence by right-wing activists.
The Federal Constitutional Court announces it will issue a verdict on January 17, 2017.

Revelations that intelligence officials held leadership positions within the NPD raised questions about the state‘s own possible role in abetting NPD activities, thereby contaminating the evidence to be considered.

- AUGUST 2007: A new proposal to ban the NPD is drafted after a group of youths chase down eight Indians in the eastern German town of Muegeln.

- APRIL 2008: SPD state interior ministers say that before a ban on the NPD can be sought, intelligence-gathering links to the party must first be "shut down" and new information collected. The centre-right CDU/CSU rejects any new attempt to seek a ban.

- MARCH 2012: State interior ministers agree to systematically gather evidence against the NPD, ruling out the use of liaison officers in the NPD leadership.

- NOVEMBER 2012: The NPD asks the Constitutional Court to review the party‘s allegiance to the constitution, arguing that accusations that the party is unconstitutional violated its rights. The court rejects the case in March 2013.

- DECEMBER 2012: Parliament‘s upper chamber, the Bundesrat, approves starting new proceedings to ban the NPD. The state of Hessen abstains in the vote.

- MARCH 2013: The coalition government of the CDU/CSU and FDP decides against joining the Bundesrat‘s motion. In April, the lower house Bundestag also rejects seeking a ban.

- DECEMBER 2013: The Bundesrat files a new ban motion.

- MAY 2015: Germany‘s 16 states provide the Constitutional Court with new evidence that the activities of secret informants had been shut down.

- MARCH 2016: In three days of hearings in Karlsruhe, lawyers for the Bundesrat and NPD, experts and politicians debate the issue. Judges appear to place greater importance on the political influence exerted by the NPD.

- OCTOBER 2016: The European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg rejects a complaint filed by the NPD that it is being stigmatised as unconstitutional in Germany.

- NOVEMBER 2016: The Federal Constitutional Court announces it will issue a verdict on January 17, 2017.

- DECEMBER 2016: The tabloid Bild reports that the Berlin government, in an internal assessment, does not expect the Karlsruhe judges to approve the NPD ban.
