Posing as a fruit seller from Damascus, German army lieutenant Franco Albrecht, 28, had managed to gain asylum in his own country, obtaining a space in a shelter and monthly benefits of 409 euros ($485), even though he speaks no Arabic.
Investigators said Albrecht — who harboured far-right, anti-immigrant views — was plotting an attack that he planned to blame on refugees.
But Germany’s Federal Court of Justice said “the results so far of the investigation do not substantiate the strong suspicion that a serious act threatening the state was in preparation.”
Albrecht, who still faces charges over his fictive life as a refugee, is free while investigations continue, the court said.
