Illegal Migrant Seriously Damages Swiss Church Organ Causing Thousands in Damages

Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, June 18, 2022

An illegal immigrant said to have severe psychological difficulties, broke into a church in Neuchâtel, causing tens of thousands of Swiss francs in damage to the church’s organ.

The attack took place earlier this week on Tuesday at the Collegiate Church of Neuchâtel when a man broke into the church with the intention of spending the night inside the church building. {snip}

A police statement claimed that there had been “significant” damage to the organ of the church, which had been recently renovated at the cost of 550,000 Swiss Francs (£461,025/$569,160) and had only been back in service this year after being silent since 1996, 20 Minutes reports.

Police state they believe that the man did not damage the organ for religious or political reasons {snip}


Church attacks have become increasingly common in Switzerland’s neighbour France in recent years and there have been cases similar to the case in Neuchâtel, including an attack by a Pakistani migrant who vandalised the Saint-Denis Basilica, the home of the tombs of many of France’s former Kings.
