Translated by Sjoerd from NOS:
“The German police need more people to handle the massive fights in asylum centers. So says the chairman of the largest German police union, Rainer Wendt. Lately, this happens almost every day. ‘The government clearly does not control the situation. In this way we will not be able to stop the development.’ says Wendt.
The police had to act in Hamburg last night in a shelter to keep apart some 200 fighting refugees, Afghans and Syrians. Last week 14 people were injured in a fight in a camp near the city of Kassel. Police were attacked with pepper spray byt the refugees.
Wendt demands more people to register refugees on the border with Austria, but also in the refugee camps. According to Wendt, violence occurs there every day and this is endangering all residents. ‘Groups of refugees attack each other during night time. With clubs and knives they fight out their conflicts, some armed to the teeth,’ says Wendt.
Earlier this week it was proposed to accommodate refugees separately based on their religion. According to Wendt this is not a solution. ‘Most of the fights are between Muslims themselves. Sunnis, Shiites, Salafists … If we have to separate all of them, there is no room for that.'”
