In the debate about security in Düsseldorf's old town, fueled by two bloody acts, Düsseldorf's police chief Norbert Wesseler has come under fire.

In the debate about security in Düsseldorf's old town, fueled by two bloody acts, Düsseldorf's police chief Norbert Wesseler has come under fire.

Mayor Stephan Keller (CDU) attacked Wesseler on Wednesday: He would be happy if the security of this city were also a matter close to the heart of the police chief, he told the "Rheinische Post".

Düsseldorf - Düsseldorf's FDP leader Agnes Strack-Zimmermann had previously requested Wesseler's replacement.

He was not present in the matter at important appointments.

From the North Rhine-Westphalia Ministry of the Interior, it was said on Wednesday, on request, that personal details are generally not commented on.

Wesseler received help from the police union: “The CDU should come to an agreement on who is responsible for security in the city.

In the election campaign against SPD mayor Thomas Geisel it was the mayor for them, now it should suddenly be the police president, ”said GdP country chief Michael Mertens.

The criticism was motivated by party politics, said Mertens.

"We have now also reached the election campaign in North Rhine-Westphalia," he told the German press agency.

Wesseler is attributed to the SPD.

“Knife attacks didn't just start yesterday.

The police in Düsseldorf only recently expanded a stringent security concept and video surveillance, ”said Mertens, who called for a return to the subject-matter discussion.

"In a regulatory partnership, both sides should feel responsible for security."

If young people do not obey the rules, it is not just a matter for the police.

"I think many young people underestimate the danger and don't see that a knife can be fatal," said Mertens.

The police had only expanded video surveillance in the old town a few weeks ago.

The city then increased the lighting on the nearby banks of the Rhine, because there too there were increased crimes and tumults.
