    While overall crime has declined by ten percent under the conservative coalition government of the Austrian People’s Party and the Freedom Party in the first six months of 2018, foreigners nevertheless make up 40 percent of all criminal suspects in Austria.

    According to Kronen Zeitung, Vienna has the most foreign suspects at 51.4 percent.

    The number of reported murder cases has also risen as well as the number of reported rapes. In the first six months of 2017, 261 rape cases were reported, compared to 374 this year — an huge increase of 43.3 percent.

    The Interior Ministry headed by Freedom Party interior minister Herbert Kickl released figures showing a rise in the number of sexual assault and rape cases in 2017.

    Afghan nationals constitute the largest foreign suspect group, rising from 64 suspects in 2014 to 263 in 2017. In 2016 already, the number of migrant sex attacks had increased by a massive 133 percent.

    Knife crime is also up, with the number of stabbings, especially during inter-ethnic conflicts.  It is not just a subjective feeling of many Austrians that the number of knife attacks in recent years has increased significantly. Crime statistics 2017 now clearly shows that violent criminals are increasingly resorting to knives: there were more than 1000 attacks in the previous year alone.

    Looking at the development over the past decade, that means an incredible 290 percent increase. To clarify the question of why, a separate university study has now been commissioned.

    The naked figures paint a clear picture: The propensity to violence has increased steadily in the past ten years.

    These crimes are “reinforced by foreign suspects” who resort to stabbing and stabbing weapons, the Interior Ministry noted.

    Even in sexual assaults, suspects attacked with knives and the like in order to bring their victims under control and scare them. The University of Vienna is busy conducting a study to find the causes for the increase.

    Kickl has said that the asylum system in Austria should be reformed. Figures released earlier this week show the current government averaging 19 deportations per day.
