Germany’s flood area looted by foreigners
Not only, but above all Romanians and Turks have been put on record as looters after the flood disaster in North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate. This has emerged from a written report by the North Rhine-Westphalian Ministry of the Interior, which was triggered by an application by the Düsseldorf AfD parliamentary group on August 4, 2021.

There were only a few cases of looting that appeared in the mainstream news during the flood disaster in North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate: looters who went on a rampage in abandoned shops, burglars who rummaged around in damaged houses, gangs who stole the meagre belongings that the owners had left to dry on the street or in the garden.
But around a month and a half after the disaster, it turns out that the acts were by no means just isolated cases. And this also confirms what many had previously dismissed as right-wing propaganda or agitation on social media: While the flood victims were expressing desperation over government insouciance and neglect, predominantly criminal foreigners took advantage of German misery to enrich themselves.
According to the report, “Romanians” form the largest group of looters, followed by Germans and Turks. Regarding “Germans” however, it stated: “If people have other nationalities in addition to German citizenship, they are shown as German citizens.” This admission does not need any further explanation.
Unfortunately, one cannot tell from the report which “Romanians” were caught looting. As is well known, certain mobile ethnic minorities come from Romania, and when they appeared in residential areas in earlier years, German housewives would take the laundry off the line in order to avoid losses.
The rest of the list reads like the “who’s who” of those invited by Chancellor Merkel in 2015 to “enrich Germany’s culture”. Some of her invitees seem to be reasonably disciplined until the lights go out and the police are too busy with other things to watch out for them.
The Ministry of the Interior of North Rhine-Westphalia on Thursday in the state parliament had to answer hard questions about looting and similar crimes detected by the police during the flood. District police authorities recorded 193 acts of this kind in 24 cities, of which 27 were rated as attempts.
Property crimes include theft, particularly serious theft, break-ins, serious gang theft and embezzlement. The damage caused by this has so far been estimated at around a quarter of a million euros (227 000) euros. The figures are regarded as provisional and may even increase.
The police identified 145 suspects between the ages of twelve and 69. By far the largest group, those with Romanian citizenship, numbered a total of 52, while 27 “German” suspects were listed in second place. However, this included all the alleged perpetrators who also had another nationality in addition to being German.
Twelve Turkish suspects were listed, as well as seven Bulgarians, seven Syrians, three Albanians, and so on. Two suspects each came from Afghanistan, Lebanon, Morocco, Montenegro, the Netherlands and Nigeria. The authorities also registered individual suspects from Bangladesh, Cameroon and the Congo. Thus, 118 out of 145 suspects had no German citizenship. That corresponds to around 81 percent.
