More than half of the criminal inmates of Germany’s largest prison are nonwhite “asylum seekers,” and “refugees” are three times more likely to commit crimes than Germans, official figures have revealed.
In addition, at least four prisons are now filled to 110 percent of their capacity because of the nonwhite invader crime.
As reported by the Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung, the chairman of the Gewerkschaft der Strafvollzugsbediensteten (Union of Prison Guards, BSBD), Anton Bachl, the figures have not been released until now “because they do not fit into the political landscape.”
Bachl said that German prisons are becoming “overcrowded because of the increasing number of criminal asylum seekers.”
“The wave of refugees has had important consequences for the German prison system,” he told that newspaper, adding that the “number of prisoners on remand has climbed significantly—and definitively with foreigners.”
He went on to criticize the “non-transparent handling of the problem,” saying “Sometimes one could get the impression that the figures are handled cautiously because they do not fit into the political landscape.”
Even though non-German nationals officially make up around 9 percent of the population, they account for 30 percent of all prisoners in Germany.
Of those prisoners in pre-trial detention, the “proportion of foreigners is significantly higher,” and “foreigners are three times as likely to offend as Germans.”
The prisons of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia are particularly affected, the BSBD representative in that region, Peter Brock, told the Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung.
“Since the sexual assaults on women carried out by foreigners in Cologne on New Year’s Eve, the police have increased the number of raids [on ‘immigrants’],” Brock said.
“The judges have also cracked down on offenders and have started imposing pretrial detention because of public pressure,” he continued.
“Foreign offenders are often remanded in custody because they have no fixed abode and the risk of flight is particularly high,” he added, revealing that prisons in Dortmund, Duisburg-Hamborn, Willich II, and Essing, currently have a 110 percent occupancy rate.
