Sex Crimes by refugees double up in Germany; Court’s leniency responsible: blames a Think Tank

Berlin : Instances of sex crimes by refugees having doubled in Germany in 2016 come as a shocking revelation. In the year 2015, crimes of this nature committed by migrants were 1,683. But in 2016 its ratio has increased to 3,404. The crimes include not only outraging a woman’s modesty but also terrible crimes like rape. A criticism from ‘Gatestone‘ publishers of the present report, states that the cause of the increasing crimes lies with the German legal system which has taken a soft approach towards the migrants.


Gatestone, a neutral think tank in Germany, has published a report informing about the sex crimes committed by migrants in Germany in the past 2 years which has become controversial. Gatestone has stated that the crimes committed by the migrants in 2016 which have increased twofold, should be a matter of great concern to Germany. The sex crimes committed in Germany are by refugees coming from countries like Syria, Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran and also Algeria and Morocco. The report has emphasized the German judicial’s soft approach towards crimes ranging from outraging a woman’s modesty to rape. ’Gatestone‘ has blamed this wishy washy approach to be the cause of increase in the sex crimes in the previous two years.  

Gatestone has pointed out that the crimes committed by the migrants in Germany in 2016 have increased by whooping five times as compared to the crimes in 2012. It is also becoming clear that the crimes have been increasing with the increase in number of migrants. A harsh criticism from Gatestone has been that the German judicial system and the police machinery have been pushing the crimes committed by migrants literally under the carpet. To prove this claim, the Think Tank has cited an example.

A case of a 23 year old refugee from Turkey, charged for raping a German woman, had come before the Court. However, in spite of committing this crime he was acquitted. Why, because the victim could not prove to the court that she had opposed the youth. In spite of her repeated requests and opposition, the young refugee did not heed her. The Court did not accept her statement that the young man had been assaulting her sexually for four hours and hopelessly she had to bear the atrocity. With this example, Gatestone tore up the German judicial system.

The German police have already been blamed for showing sympathy towards the refugees committing crimes, instead of showing readiness to act against the criminals. On the very first day of the year 2016, in the city of Cologne, a mob of almost one thousand refugees, had committed crimes ranging from loot to sexual attacks on women. But the police in Cologne ignored it. Due to this a lot of dissatisfaction had been simmering amongst the people in Germany. Eventually, the police chief who was attempting to go slow on the criminals had to be fired.

In this context, the report by Gatestone, would enhance the displeasure felt by the Germans against the migrants. The public opinion has reached a boiling point against the German Chancellor Merkel who has welcomed a million refugees in Germany. Considering this, Chancellor Merkel would have to take strong action against the refugees.
