Next Review Date: 2008 25X1 l.. a meeting of the commandants of the paramilitary schools was held In Berlin at the headquarters of the I"Verwaltung f1r Schulung bei der DVdIt'. In addition to the commandants themselves, General Petrakovsky was present, as well as Chief Inspector Willy Zaisser and In- spectors lloitsch* (successor to llerr>ann Rentzsch as chief of the parar:ilitai', police), Zorn (in. char a of Abte i lunr Inspection), and l1ans 'Julz (in charge oe ?trainini) 6 The discussion covered a nusrlbor of topics, including the status of the schools, the results of a recent inspection trip by Zorn, training methods, parsoaool t14" , the enforcement of the disciplinary coda, furloughs, and the economical adzninistration of the schools. 2. An introductory talk ems ?ode by Zaiasser. He declared that the insistence of the Allied 'lith Com -issioners upon reservinr' the final decision on the trade treaty between the eastern and western zones signifies that the Allies themselves consider East Gerarsy a foreign state, and that this in effect corn firms the final. ? plit bet'reon East and 'Test. The creation of the East Gorman state wee a necessary corollary of thin :lovelop*tent. lie said that it is incum- bent upon the political parties to rtc a increasing efforts to render the Na- tional Front an effective instrument, and that all ronsible concessions 7,411 have to be -ade in furthering this end. Applying this principles to police affairs, he pointed out that it is i rortant not to repro:rent the y*lice force as an instrument of the RED. An illustration of this 1^o? icy 'as a recent occur- rence in Saxony, whore Bone nor-bare of the paramilitary police applied for ad- rtission to the GATT in order to provoke dismissal from the force; in line T,rith the .dational Front policy they were retained. 3. Zaisser rorarked that the croation of a aoverei' n vast Gorzan state will result in the reduction of soviet r ,ronentative?s to more control or-n- nn. The soviet officers attached to the schnola are to be a?(apax ad as such eont?'f...6 or'ana. Their presence should be thou?Thtof as syrtholiziri" the close friendship between the Sovi st Izrq and the Fedp e's Police. In this connection, an tm ecltmivocal di- rective has been i -isued stating that no local intorL'orence in paramilitary affairs will be tolerated; Soviet officials are to be admitted to the various installations only Frith special credentials oi'nod by General Petrakovsky.

He criticized 4the habit of addressing superiors as "Con:ads", and pointed out that this practice had long since been discarded i!Lthe Soviet Union and the satellite countrias. 50 it was brouft out at the meeting that fc'- purposes of SED control the Verwal- tunp; fur Schulung is considered as an SED lircetorate on a level with the Landesleitungen, direcirbly under the SED Cu ttral Secretariat.

C = The number of units listed in pares. 7 and 8 would indicate a strength of about 45,000. The steps taken thus far point to the creation of a cadre for a "People's Arr!,q", but current combat potential is very low. The state of housing and equi}xnent is extremely poor and there is no izmnediate prospect of improvement; the meth's morale is largely determined by material factors. The rigors of the training schedule and the infrequency of furloughs (granted only at Easter and Christmas) are likely to loner morale still, further. 9VRUAL M T OFFICIALS ONLY Approved For Release 2006/02/27 : CIA-RDP82-00457R003500560005-1
