Dramatic increase in German arrest warrants for jihadists

In Germany, the total number of wanted notices recorded in the police information system (INPOL-Z) as of September 30, 2020, with an arrest warrant and arrest for a criminal offense, for the execution of a sentence, placement or expulsion / deportation / removal was 174 100.

    This information was made public as a result of the response by the federal government to a small request from the AfD parliamentary group under the leadership of the deputy spokesman for his party, Stephan Brandner.

    In addition, as of September 30, 2020, a total of 7163 open arrest warrants for 1 456 people with a politically motivated background were posted in INPOL-Z or those from foreign authorities in the Schengen Information System (SIS II). Of these, 5767 unexecuted arrest warrants could be assigned to a “religious ideology”.

    Stephan Brandner said he was shocked to see the number of unexecuted arrest warrants rise again, especially in the area of religious ideology:

    “Compared to March this year, the number of unexecuted arrest warrants in the area of politically motivated crime rose by 333. The numbers are extremely worrying, especially given that they include 259 arrest warrants for terrorist offenses. The Federal Government is also aware of 169 threats with an open arrest warrant,” he said. At least 165 of them were listed for “religious ideology”.

    He added: “The figures clearly show: Islamism in all its forms is the greatest threat to our country and our democracy. Anyone who underestimates that and pumps more and more money into the fight against the right, while other extremists can go about their mischief virtually unnoticed, disregards the fact that we are sitting on a ticking time bomb.”

      Indeed, the number of unexecuted arrest warrants should be a cause for concern by the German public. The number of jihadists sought by the authorities continues to increase, while the ability of the German police and security forces tasked with monitoring jihadism continues to lag. The situation in Germany mirrors that in France and other western European countries, where government authorities remain unable to not only arrest or otherwise serve warrants on active jihadists, but are unable to keep track of them all. Jihadist numbers continue to increase, and the continuing movement of such people from the Middle East war zone to Europe brings more and more people with combat and terrorism experience to the no-go zones of European cities. And this happens as the flow of military-grade weapons from the Balkans and beyond into western Europe continues as well.
