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 German borders.
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 replied:
“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.”
