The regional daily, the Kieler Nachrichten, revealed the cover-up of migrant crimes by referring to internal police reports that they had obtained.
These crimes noted in the police report, were however not announced publicly by the police. The CDU-led Ministry of Interior explained that “active press work” about the accommodation would be “irresponsible”. The crimes were allegedly hushed to avoid “prejudice”.
From December 2018 to February 2019, according to statistics, there were 19 violations, one rape and one child sexual abuse case in the property alone. The most common crime was theft, property damage and threats.
Asylum seekers themselves were also caught up in other crimes. The police statistics listed 23 cases in which the inhabitants were suspects. Mostly it was noted as stealing in supermarkets.
Already at the beginning of 2016, it was reported that the police leadership and public prosecutor’s office in Kiel had agreed not to prosecute “simple offenses” of asylum seekers without identity papers . The police effort of determining the background and personal data of the offender, is too onerous, they argued.
Since the beginning of the migrant crisis, authorities have repeatedly been confronted with allegations of hiding crimes committed by asylum seekers.
Already in November 2015, police officers lamented a manipulation of the reports. In Thuringia, for example, there were rumours about police officers being told not to report on assignments in asylum accommodation.
The state government of Prime Minister Bodo Ramelow (Left Party) rejected the allegations.
Reports from other federal states about such instructions to the security authorities have also been available in recent years .
Former German intelligence chief Hans-Georg Maaßen recently told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung that mass immigration poses huge a huge security risk: “This implies that security in times of millions of uncontrolled mass immigration is not a matter of course and that sheep and wolves do not graze peacefully.”
Maaßen was fired because he had criticized the Merkel administration over their lies about a “rightwing hunt” after the death of a German-Cuban in Chemnitz, for which two asylum seekers are held responsible.
Asked about the possibility that his descriptions could now be regarded as too partisan in retrospect, Maaßen replied: “No, German civil service law does not stipulate that civil servants are political castrati. Even civil servants may be members of a party, and this is especially true for political officials.”
In a contribution to Focus last week the former spy boss attacked Merkel’s asylum policy.
