No ticket, on a long wanted list and 12 identities…

A 42-year-old Moroccan migrant reacted aggressively on Sunday morning when a German train attendant wanted to check his ticket on the Eurocity 7 from Hamburg to Interlaken. The Moroccan had been travelling without a ticket and he appeared quite convinced that the German Rail's transport guidelines did not apply to him.

    He also had no cash to redeem a ticket, and started abusing the employees of the German Rail in Italian. Eventually, they called the Federal Police. In Bonn, the officials escorted the African from the train.

    When checking his identity by means of his fingerprints, the police then found that the Moroccan was a wanted individual in the police search database – wanted by 13 different prosecutors. And in nine cases it was because of transport violations.

    In fact, the police database came up with more salient information about the Moroccan. In the past he had used at least twelve different names, was being searched in Italy, the Netherlands and Germany for unauthorized stay and already on a deportation list. He was eventually taken into custody.

    The case is reminiscent of an asylum seeker from Eritrea who was caught masturbating in an ICE train in 2016. Since he had no ticket and no cash with him, he had to leave the train in the company of the Federal Police for identification. It turned out that he already had 189 criminal charges for fraudulent benefits and over 40 thefts listed on his crime record.

    Added to this were other acts such as trespassing and property damage. Unlike the Moroccan from the Eurocity last Sunday, the 22-year-old Eritrean was released.

    Such cases are regularly noted in German police reports: asylum seekers who end up with multiple identities during checks.

    Alleged “refugees” that hide their true origin and repeatedly give false information, have an almost unlimited source of income. Since the beginning of the asylum crisis in 2015, a multitude of such cases have been reported in which thousands of euros in social assistance were handed out to false identities, sometimes involving five-figure sums. It has not yet been possible to estimate how much damage has been caused to German taxpayers.

    The absurd excesses were revealed in a case from Essen. In March, the police in the Ruhr city arrested an African with no less than 24 identities. The Islamist terrorist Anis Amri had moved through Europe unhindered in the same way before his attack on the Christmas market at Berlin’s Breitscheidplatz.

    Therefore, it is often unclear who is really staying in the country as potential terrorists move undetected among the population.

    In Berlin, only the Neukölln district has equipment for verifying falsified identity cards. In all other districts of the capital, the authorities must rely on the data given by asylum seekers themselves.

    These cases show how the rule of law in Germany has been eroded as social fraud continues daily while the terrorist threat has become a permanent condition.

    But despite this crisis, Thuringia’s Minister of the Interior Georg Maier (SPD) has threatened police with disciplinary measures if they claim membership of a “wing” of the AfD. “All civil servants, not just policemen who are involved with the ‘wing’, must expect that disciplinary action will follow,” he told the news agency dpa.

    The background to this statement is the candidacy of five police officers standing for the AfD in the state election in Thuringia in late October.

    Earlier, even the police union doubted if these police officers who were committed to the AfD would be fit for duty. The CDU Bundestag delegate Patrick Sensburg had demanded that the officials be checked for their “constitutional loyalty”.

    The AfD has polled 24 percent ahead of the CDU with 23 percent and behind the Left Party with 29 percent. The Greens and SPD received nine percent each.
