Dutch citizen’s tip-off about Berlin jihadist roused no interest
When a Dutch citizen reported that he had seen the Berlin jihadist on Wednesday, his eyewitness account did not rouse much interest.

A commentator on the Dutch political website GeenStijl reported that he had seen the Berlin jihadist Anis Amri on Wednesday, December 21 in the subway in Amsterdam.
Two things stand out from his account: Firstly, this not-so-lonewolf jihadist traveled with company. Secondly the commentator, who calls himself “Slabak” sent the following mail on Wednesday to the German authorities, the BKA or Bundeskriminalamt, but never heard anything back.
On Thursday morning, he called the National Investigation Authority which linked him to Amsterdam Police. The responder spoke to him for half a minute, telling him that the tip had been recorded. Further details were not asked, and she seemed to show no interest.
GeenStijl says they know the commentator and have decided to use the information unfiltered and uncut:

As the online form seems not working (i get: Bad Request The server detected a syntax error in your request. Check your request and all parameters.) so i am sending this via email, can you please let me know if you received this email as otherwise i need to find other ways to send it)
The second picture shown on the mentioned page (Anis AMRI, Bild aus Duldungsbescheinigung) looks like a person that I saw in a Metro today in Amsterdam.
Arround 16:50 today i arrived from work at the Metro-station Holendrecht Amsterdam. Here some people were waiting for the metro. also 2 guys were waiting there, 1 with a small beard, and 1 looking exactly like the mentioned picture. I went into the metro (i think it was Metro 50, [Metro 50 goes to Sloterdijk, red.] but can also be metro 54) . I took the first door directly after the 2 guys, and stood next to them next to the door (as i only have to travel 2 stops i did not sit down). When the Metro left i looked aside to the 2 guys, the one that looked like the second picture looked away when i looked at him. Then he walked to the other door, away from his buddy and started looking outside as if i was not allowed to see him. I found this behavior weird, as they really stood next to each other on the platform and in the Metro, and now he walked at least 2 meter away from his friend without talking.
At the meanwhile his friend looked at me once in a while.
The guy was wearing a black woolen cap, a dark green half long dark blue/green jacket, jeans with 1 teared knee (right). And brand new dark blue leather walking-shoes (at least: they were still shiny, and the sole was totally clean).
The second person was not wearing a hat, had a round face with a small/little beard and was wearing a dark-blue bomberjack (i’m not really sure about this as he was standing next to me and i do not exactly remember)
I went out 2 stops in the direction of central station (Amsterdam Arena) to take the bus. The 2 guys stayed on the Metro so i do not know anymore.

LyonRight-wing and even Macron voters are strongly in favour of stricter measures regarding the reception and management of migrants on French territory, but it appears that the president has been deliberately deceiving his constituents. It is becoming increasingly difficult for the authorities and the media to make people believe that denouncing the migratory invasion is an "extreme right-wing" issue.
It is a small sensation that should ring all the alarm bells among the established players. According to a recent survey by the Wahlkreisprognose platform, AfD federal spokeswoman Alice Weidel is now the favorite for the job of chancellor in central Germany – ahead of incumbent Scholz (SPD).
