Hellenbroich: Brothers in the News Business
The married couple of Hellenbroich occupied key positions in the LaRouche-Cult institutions.
The Name Hellenbroich will still be remembered by some from Press coverage. At the age of 48 Heribert Hellenbroich was President of the Federal Office for the protection of the Constitution when his brother Anno Hellenbroich, then 36, was an important functionary of the LaRouche Cult.
In that same year the Green Party Member of Parliament asked a question to the Federal Government about the LaRouche Schiller Institute and received the following reply. There are no safety concerns lying before the Federal Government (concerning the Schiller Institute) Der Spiegel also reported as follows: "The President is reported to have told Der Spiegel in 1984, why his own brother’s Organisation was not listed in the Verfassungsschutz report. The reason given was that there was no excessive Nationalism in respect of the LaRouche cult." This is quoted in the book page 166.
Heribert was retired from the Bundesverfassungsschutz on the grounds of neglect of duties but this did not mention that this was related to his brother’s activities in the LaRouche cult. It was attributed to his failure with respect of his co-worker Tidge also working for the German Democratic Republic.
Heribert Hellenbraoch later became the President of another secret service; the Federal News Services [Bundesnachrichtendienstes] in Pullach. From 1986 he then directed the Cologne office of Prognos AG, which was also connected to the Defence Industry (according to Lorscheid-Müller, page 172).
At any rate, the brothers were active in the same area of interest namely in the Intelligence and Information. Since 1980 Anno Hellenbroich was co-founder and Director of the (LaRouche's) Executive Intelligence Review News Agency GmbH.
