See: Germany's intelligence agency to step up surveillance of AfD (The Local, link):
"However, the agency has shied away from immediate full surveillance of the entire party, including phone and email taps, the use of undercover informants and the collection of personal data on MPs.
A report on the move by Berlin's Tagesspiegel daily was confirmed to AFP by sources familiar with the decision ahead of separate Berlin press conferences by domestic intelligence (BfV) chief Thomas Haldenwang and AfD leaders."
