Significantly more Germans are crime victims of foreigners than the other way around

Germans are significantly more likely to be victims of crimes involving foreign suspects than the other way around.

    In 2019, the police cleared up around 70 000 cases in which at least one German suspect was involved and at least one foreigner was a victim. On the other hand, there were around 130 000 criminal offenses in which at least one non-German acted criminally against a German, according to a request from AfD MP Stephan Brandner to the federal government.

    The proportion of foreigners was around 12.5 percent in 2019. Figures for 2020 are not yet available, as the police crime statistics (PKS) will probably only be available in April, according to the answer from the Federal Ministry of the Interior. Only solved cases were considered in the evaluation. In addition, victims were recorded in the PKS “in principle only in the case of criminal acts against highly personal legal interests (life, physical integrity, freedom, honour, sexual self-determination”.

    The AfD politician also wanted to know how high the proportion of immigrants was among the suspects in cases in which Germans were victims. This group is defined in the PKS as persons with the residence status of asylum seekers, persons entitled to protection and asylum, quota refugees, tolerated persons or those who are illegally staying in Germany. The police registered around 35 500 such cases in 2019. Most of the suspects came from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq.

    In murder cases there were 248 incidents with a German as the suspect and a foreigner as the victim. Conversely, the number of such acts totaled 356. The police also recorded significantly more foreigners assaulting Germans than the other way around (458) in the case of rape, sexual assault or crimes against sexual self-determination. The same applied to bodily harm.

    Brandner told Berlin weekly the Junge Freiheit after viewing the data: “An efficient fight against crime includes taking statistics seriously and not talking nicely, as the federal government always does.” The AfD politician also criticized the fact that German victims of foreign crime were not in the public eye. It was “the duty of a state to protect its population from avoidable violent crime”. Criminal asylum seekers should therefore be deported promptly. “They have lost their right to protection,” he said.

    The answer to another AfD request from last week had shown that the number of convicted foreign offenders had increased significantly in recent years. Over the past decade it has grown by 51 percent.
