Internal police authorities have
uncovered 117 criminal offences which happened at the State Refugee
Accommodation (LUK) in Boostedt, Schleswig-Holstein and also 23 crimes that
were reportedly committed by migrants residing in other asylum centers in the municipality.
According to the report, the list of
offences included rape, assault, threats, property damage and child abuse.
These were allegedly concealed by German police to prevent inciting prejudice.
The CDU-led Ministry of Interior
justified the decision to hide the crimes that occurred in the facility by
stating that news reports about potential migrant involvement in crimes would
be irresponsible and may incite acts prejudicial and harmful to migrants.
The crime rate in Boostedt started
rising at the onset of 2015 migrant crisis, when the municipality began hosting
1,369 asylum seekers.
According to the Hamburger
Abendblatt, crime swelled by almost 75 per cent in the last year, with the
number of offences rising from 207 to 360.
The Hamburg daily also reported that the number of thefts increased from
68 to 167 over the period.
The number of crimes committed at
asylum centers has more than doubled since Chancellor Angela Merkel opened the
Since the migrant crisis, Merkel’s
administration has been suspected of hiding crimes committed by migrants.
Former German intelligence head
honcho Hans-Georg Maassen recently told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung that
mass immigration poses a huge security risk:
“This implies that security in times
of millions of uncontrolled mass immigration is not a matter of course and that
sheep and wolves do not graze peacefully.”
Maassen was relieved from his
position because he openly criticized Merkel’s government for lying about
“rightwing hunt” following the death of a German-Cuban in Chemnitz, where two
asylum seekers have been held accountable.
Asked about the possibility that his
descriptions could now be regarded as too partisan in retrospect, Maasen
“No, German civil service law does not
stipulate that civil servants are political castrati. Even civil servants may
be members of a party, and this is especially true for political officials.”
