    “For example, we need a stalking clause that better protects public officials and police officers,” he told regional daily the Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung.

    In Lower Saxony it happened several times that members of criminal clans visited civil servants in their private environment. “There were cases where after missions either a colleague was followed on the way home or they showed in front of the house of another colleague with a conspicuous vehicle,” said Maßmann.

    In yet another case, a clan member in a gym had asked a police officer who had been there with his son if it was his child.

    Maßmann complained that it was difficult to act against it. The clans were still in a legal gray area. “The legislature is in demand here,” the police chief said.

    The national leader of the police union, Oliver Malchow, also pleaded for action to be taken against this behavior by members of clans. “If individual police officers are put under pressure, it is important to act to uphold the rule of law, when final limits are clearly exceeded. Then it’s about the private protection of the investigating forces.”

    Currently, Lower Saxony Hanover, Oldenburg, Hildesheim, Wilhelmshaven and Braunschweig are the main focus of clan crime. The crimes committed mostly concern fraud, dangerous bodily injury, threat, insult and property damage.

      “Clans” is of course a codeword for the organized criminal gangs of Middle East origin that control the no-go zones of Germany’s major cities. They are also found throughout the urban areas of other western European countries. They are usually based around the mosque communities in ethnic areas of the no-go zones,controlling drug trafficking, the rackets, and other criminal activities. Indeed, income from organized crime, as well as from unfunded welfare benefits, are the main sources of income for most of the no-go zones. Currently there are a number of armed struggles in the no-go zones as the “clan” leadership is being challenged by newcomers who want to takeover the lucrative criminal operations. And migrants from the Middle East war zone are very useful in these gang wars. They are armed with military-grade weapons from the Balkans or beyond, and bring a range of combat and terrorist skills to the fight.
