Only 35 centimeters deep was the hole, in which a police officer Susanna. Her body was on the edge of a commercial area in Wiesbaden, buried railroad tracks next to the railway. It was covered with earth and brushwood. Almost the officials would have gone over, but a clothing label glimmered white through the undergrowth. So he looked closer. So the Wiesbaden police President described it in the past year.

About the handling of the police with missing person cases. Or the German right of asylum, the case was quickly exploited – for example, by the AfD, the provoked in the Bundestag with a minute of silence.

in addition, the investigator Ali b. throw a heavy robbery and abuse of an Eleven-year-old. In April 2018 he had lured her to his room in the asylum accommodation, on the bed thrown, and raped. Well a month later, he and a 14-Year old, the girl again raped, outside, in the vicinity of the asylum accommodation.

Shortly after the escape it came to the spectacular return. Kurdish security forces took the 21-Year-old, he was brought without extradition proceedings to Germany.

this is Also part of the case of Susanna: a criticism of the authorities. The mother of the girl accused the investigators, to have to be late responding. Five days, the 14-Year-old had been missing, before the police had traced her mobile phone. Possible errors in the investigation were discussed in committees in the Landtag in Hesse and Rhineland-Palatinate. The Hesse interior Minister Peter Beuth (CDU) defended the police.

Also the handling of Ali B.’s asylum application raised questions. He was rejected, in January 2017, he complained about it. This claim was never substantiated, the Wiesbaden administrative court dealt further with the process. The President of the court defended himself later with the note, 2017 will be well-received 5000 complaints against asylum decisions, the old stock have been over 1600 cases.

These would be prioritised according to criteria such as crime or disease. In the case of Ali b. the court was, however, no evidence for unusual behaviour. In the process, Ali B. was already police, best known for robbery and assault. However, the threads ran together, nowhere, no one had the 21-Year-old on the screen.

at Least, that so much has changed in the meantime.
