To avoid the pressure of being sought by Belgian and French security authorities, Moroccan and Algerian criminals have come to Münster as asylum seekers. Similar things were observed previously in Dortmund. The immigrants are "totally out of control", and had "lost any respect" for the police and justice system. Many of them dealt drugs, committed thefts.
This is revealed in secret police documents that were sent anonymously to a newspaper. The fact that this is happening shows the level of frustration that must exist among the police themselves.
It also reveals that police checks were only performed on 10-20% of asylum seekers last year because of the pressure of numbers.
Only 25-30% of "refugees" coming from Austria have identity papers and these are often "incorrect or completely made up".
The prosecutor in North-Rhine Westphalia decided that it "wasn't in the public interest" to prosecute 5900 crimes committed by immigrants last year.
