Last summer, a resident broke her arm during a police operation in the Kraillingen asylum center. The prosecutor has now closed the case against a police officer.
Krailling - “This is really incredible.” Sonia Welski-Preißer from the Asylum Helper Circle in Krailling is shocked. The public prosecutor's office in Munich II closed the case against a policeman who was allegedly responsible for the broken arm of a resident of the Kraillingen asylum center on 18 May. Andrea Mayer, spokeswoman for the public prosecutor's office, explains: "Lack of evidence." "That is already violent," says Welski-Preißer. "Our statements do not count, it is unbelievable."
On June 27 last year, the police had moved to the Kraillingen asylum accommodation three times. The situation escalated and various investigations were the result (we reported). Among other things, that against a police officer. According to witnesses, an Afghan, then 73 years old, is said to have thrown two meters through the air. "How can the woman fall and break her arm and knock out her teeth," asks Welski-Preißer. She was there a few minutes after the broken arm. "At the time, I saw how the protocol was falsified." Police officers had written at the time that the woman had fallen in the fight. The witness who is said to have said this did not want to sign the minutes like this, she recalls. There are also videos of the incident. She does not want to believe that the proceedings have now been terminated. "I find that scandalous." The coordinator for asylum in the Starnberg district, Wolfgang Neidhart, says, "that's a cheek." It was shocking for the helpers. "You have to intervene again." The 74-year-old no longer lives in Krailling.
Two members of the state parliament want to follow up
The member of the state parliament, Florian Ritter (SPD), who immediately contacted the Ministry of the Interior after the incident, is now trying to get the order to assess what happened. "I'll stay tuned," he assures. His colleague Anne Franke (Greens) is also planning to do this. To this day, she wonders: "Why did this have to escalate, was the police reinforcement proportional?" She also denounces how long it was determined in the event of a broken arm. "It really took a long time." Ritter says this is so common.
