German Police: North African Migrants More Prone to Criminality

Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, March 3, 2019

The president of the German Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) has admitted that North African migrants are more prone to criminality and has called for police to focus their attention to prevent them from forming organised mafias.

BKA president Holger Münch said that police needed to tackle issues of North African migrant crime before criminal structures can emerge as has been the case with Arab clan mafia groups, Die Welt reports.


“Problems that have arisen in 25 to 30 years, which we will not solve in 25 to 30 days,” he said, and added that several regions of the country — Bremen, Berlin, Lower Saxony and North Rhine-Westphalia — had particular problems with organised criminal groups.

BKA reports from 2017 revealed that migrants were responsible for at least nine percent of serious crimes.

Their overrepresentation in violent crimes and sexual offences was even starker, with the number rising to over ten percent and migrants from Libya, Tunisia, Morrocco, and Algeria being particularly prevalent among the suspects.

Organised migrant gangs, such as the notorious Arab clans operating in cities like Berlin, have been a major problem for police.

In 2017 it was claimed that the Arab clans were even recruiting newly arrived asylum seekers to aid their criminal enterprises, with members visiting asylum homes in the German capital.
