DENAZIFICATION background of the particular official, together with a finding of the Public Safety Officers concerning whether: a. Removal or non-appointment appears mandatory in accordance with existing policies or directives. b. Removal or non-appointment appears within the discretion of super- vising Military Government Officers (border line case). A recommendation by the Public Safety Officers will ordinarily be made as a guide in discretionary cases. c. No objection is raised to retention or appointment on the basis of positive evidence of anti-Nazi activity. d. Appointment or retention is recommended on the basis of positive evidence of anti-Nazi activity. 9. Record of Action After the Military Government Officer has taken action in accordance with the information contained on the Fragebogen Action Sheet, he will endorse the action taken in the space provided thereon and return the Fragebogen Action Sheet to the Public Safety Officer in order that the records in each case may be complete. 10. Removal Procedure An official removed under the above procedure will not have the hearing or any of the other procedures precedent to removal of Beamten to which he may have been entitled under German law, but rather the Military Government Officer will direct his superior officer to dismiss him summarily. The superior officer will be handed an order directing the removal of the official forthwith, with the simple statement that his continuance in office is deemed inimical to the inter- est of Military Government. Where no service superior is available, the removal will be made by the Military Government Officer direct, the official being given an order dismissing him from office on the grounds mentioned above. 11. Technical Manual Attention is directed to Appendix I of the Military Government in Germany, Technical Manual, Public Safety, which sets forth the detailed procedures to be followed by Public Safety Officers in fulfilling their vetting responsibilities.
