    Raids were carried overnight at four locations in the districts of Reinickendorf and Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf, Berlin.

    Violent crime, including murder, rape and physical assault, is running rampant in German asylum shelters, according to a leaked intelligence report.

    German authorities seized weapons from the extremist milieu German in a bid to stem the rising tide of violence. The police have justified their failure to act by citing the privacy rights of criminal offenders.

    The raid was the result of several months of joint investigations of the Office of the Federal Attorney and the Berlin Police against a 40-year-old man with German citizenship who is suspected, among other things, of being a member of the Islamist milieu.

    During investigations on a different matter, indications surfaced that pointed to the suspect’s having access to arms and to weapons of war. As there was a concern that these might be used for attacks, the Berlin Attorney General took over the investigation.

    The decision for an arrest was made, as an increased readiness for violence had been noted. Investigations into this are ongoing.

    In a report, leaked to the newspaper Bild, and prepared for Markus Ulbig, the interior minister of Saxony, there were ten murders or attempted murders at Saxon migrant shelters in 2016, as well as 960 physical assaults, 671 cases of grievous bodily injury, seven rapes, 10 sexual assaults of children and 268 cases of drug trafficking.

    The report also cited hundreds of incidents of theft, coercion, arson, fights and attacks on police officers in the federal state where more than 40 000 migrants are being housed in refugee shelters.

    The violence at Saxon migrant shelters continued into the first six months of 2017, with more than 500 physical assaults, several murders and hundreds of reported thefts.

    Experts have long warned that housing migrants from different ethnic and religious backgrounds in shelters, was the ideal breeding ground for violence.

    In Germany, some 150 each day were reported in refugee shelters during the first nine months of 2016, according to another leaked report by the Federal Criminal Police [Bundeskriminalamt, BKA]. These crimes included 17 200 physical assaults, 6 500 thefts, 510 sexual assaults and 139 murders or attempted murders.

    Observers say this is just the tip of the iceberg, as most crimes go unreported out of a fear of revenge. The BKA does not make public its data about migrant shelter criminality.

    Anecdotal evidence and occasional press releases from the police, however, suggests that migrant crime has become endemic across Germany.

    During the Bild investigation into the current high levels of violence and crime, rarely reported by the police or media, an interior ministry spokesperson told the German tabloid: “The facts which the investigative authorities deem appropriate for public knowledge depend on the circumstances of the individual case.”

    According to the interior ministry, the high levels of violence were not surprising: “In general, long-term accommodation of many people in small spaces, such as first-time reception facilities, can lead to temporary, exceptional mental states which can lead to physical disputes in individual cases. Such an effect is further enhanced by heterogeneous ethnic and cultural backgrounds.”

    The interior ministry added that some of the violence could be prevented by providing migrants with “a sufficient supply of leisure activities”.
