WTH? German Officials Accused of Covering Up Sexual Abuse in Refugee Centers to Protect Image of Migrants
86 percent of citizens think Germany is a “country of immigrants”, and a clear majority want more refugees to come, according to a new social attitudes survey.
German officials are accused of covering up sexual abuse at refugee centers. They want to protect the image of migrants.
The German police union and women’s rights groups accuse the German government there are reports of abuse and rape to stop women in refugee centers in the carpet. This would make the government to protect the image of asylum seekers and thereby avoid weakening the capacity of the population for reception of refugees. This was reported by Reuters.
The German Interior Minister Thomas de Maizere denies such accusations and do it off as “gossip on the Internet.” According to Maizere all things neatly investigated and there is no reason to believe that there would be a lot of abuse in azc programs.
Rainer Wendt, head of the German police union, however, says that directors of states actually trying to downplay stories of abuse and rape.
According to Wendt gives the police sufficient reports to the directors of states so that drivers should be on what is happening on the pitch. Moreover, what is being reported only a small portion of what is really going on. Many women dare to do for fear and shame no return.
Also Barbara Helfrich, who works for a volunteer organization in the state of Hesse says that there does exist an infringement of women’s rights in azc programs. “We have several reliable reports of victims who go about sexual violence and attacks on women. NGOs and advisory groups report it, “said Helfrich told Reuters.
