Refugees in Germany reporting dozens of war crimes

The German criminal police (BKA) are receiving between 25 and 30 reports about war crimes per day from refugees arriving in the country, a regional broadcaster reported on Monday.

The BKA’s specialist war crimes division, based in the small town of Meckenheim, near Bonn, told the “Hessische Rundfunk” that they “weren’t prepared for this mass traffic,” and that additional officers had had to be called in to deal with all the reports from refugees.

Some 2,800 testimonies have already been registered in Germany, with most of the evidence coming via the routine interviews that all asylum seekers give to the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) when applying for asylum in Germany.
