German Police Would Seeking More Power To Search Immigrants Phone


In the wake of the Christmas market massacre and the discovery that assassin Anis Amri roamed around Europe with 14 aliases, pressure is on the police and security services to find out who is exactly who among the hordes of migrants currently in Germany.

Last week it was revealed that up to 300 migrants using multiple identities in the city of Braunschweig had defrauded the taxpayer out of benefits worth close to five million pounds.

Now the commissioner for refugee management, Frank-Jürgen Weise, is pressing for authorities to delve into the mobile phone histories of the new arrivals in a bid to find out who they really are.

"The mobile phone can mean a crucial access for identification for us. Technically there's opportunities that are already legally applicable," he said.

Weise also complained that there were still "technical problems" in the registration of refugees due to hundreds of different types of computer software being used in arrival centres across the country.


Police and security services upped the number of potential terrorists among the refugees from 500 to 585 in December. Many of these have multiple identities.

A speech recognition machine is also being developed to detect subtle differences in dialects.

The authorities are working backwards through the hundreds of thousands of new arrivals to check the bona fides of all who claimed they fled war and terror.

But Germany's development Minister Gerd Müller warned of a "capitulation of the State" in the refugee policy. The Bavarian CSU politician demanded the storage of biometric data for all refugee arrivals in Germany.

He said the number of abuses of the social welfare system by migrants now stands in the tens of thousands.

Detective Ulf Küch in Lower Lower Saxony claimed the average refugee welfare fiddler pocketed an average of 10,000 euros each.

"This is intolerable, and thats shabby compared to the many, many refugees, who are honestly here," added Müller said. He urged therefore a review of all of the people who came to Germany and a system to store their fingerprints to ascertain real identities.

Every German has an identity card or passport, said the minister. "We must demand the same for the refugees who arrived. Anything else would be a capitulation of the State," he added.
