Cicero is a monthly magazine for political culture. It hit the headlines in 2005 when the editorial office was raided by the police after it published an article profiling Jordanian terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi that cited confidential files from the Federal Criminal Police Office. The Federal Constitutional Court ruled that the police raid was an unconstitutional infringement of press freedom. Swiss publishing group Ringier sold the magazine at the start of 2016 and its editor-in-chief Christoph Schwennicke and his deputy Alexander Marguier took over the reins. In the following months Cicero was accused by various parties of having shifted its political stance to the right.
