The landlocked Alpine country published official statistics last week revealing a sharp increase in its prison population of 50 percent between 1988 and 2017, Radio Télévision Suisse reported.
An average of 24 percent of prisoners were Swiss citizens, 31 percent were migrants who had settled in the country and 45 percent were foreigners with no claim to citizenship.
The proportion of Swiss citizen inmates from 2007 through to 2017 was at 20 percent. Of those 28 percent were migrants living in the country while the remaining 52 percent were foreigner.
For some reason, countries like Germany, Belgium and France have found it difficult deport migrants, where Switzerland has shown resolve. During 2017, more than 1 000 criminal migrants were deported to their countries of origin.
The trend of migrants being over-represented in crime, is not a new one. In 2017, almost half of all suspects of crimes in the German capital Berlin, had foreign background.
German daily Berliner Morgenpost listed the breakdown of official crimes from 201:
Pickpocketing – 90,7 percent
Heroin dealing – 84,9percent
Car theft – 79,60 percent
Other vehicle theft – 73,1 percent
Cannabis dealing – 62,5 percent
Fraud – 58,9 percent
Counterfeiting – 58,3 percent
Money laundering – 54,9 percent
Shoplifting – 54,3 percent
Handling of stolen goods – 53,9 percent
Domestic burglary – 52,2 percent
In neighbouring Austria, migrants are also over-represented in crime statistics. Austrian daily Kronen Zeitung underscored that in 2018, the capital city of Vienna registered more than half of all criminal suspects as migrants.
