Ex-MI5 spy says women ‘unsafe on the streets’ of Merkel’s Germany due to sex assault risks

Annie Machon, a former MI5 intelligence officer, has criticised German authorities for not doing enough on stopping sexual assaults taking place.

In the lead up to New Year’s Eve Cologne Mayor, Henriette Reker, launched a wristband campaign aimed at stopping sexual assault.

Hundreds of wristbands with the word “respect” written on them were handed out across the city to members of the public.
