German police warns against failed control with refugees…
German police find it difficult to comply with the requirement to control fingerprints of refugees and immigrants. It has, according to the newspaper Die Welt, made the police sound the alarm and warn that the lack of control is a security risk.
According to two police unions, the German border police were only able to control 10 percent of the migrants’ fingerprints. Thus, hundreds of thousands of migrants have only be identified by their travel documents. …
Vice Chairman of the Association Jörg Radek called the situation “subversive” for safety.
There is focus on fingerprints and control of the incoming refugees and immigrants because of fears that the terrorist group Islamic State smuggles in terrorists among the refugees seeking to reach Europe.
Especially after it emerged that the Islamic State can produce credible passports after having gained the required facilities in Syria.
At the same time, according to the German Police Union, only 25-30 percent of the incoming have passports and other travel documents.
Therefore, the police focuses on fingerprints, which can then be compared with international registries, and verify the identity and the migrant with databases of potential terrorists.”
