Germany: 79 suspected or convicted jihadis to be released



What could possibly go wrong? Celebrate diversity!

“Allahu Akbar: 79 Islamists are released from German prisons,” translated from “Allahu akbar: 79 Islamisten werden aus deutschen Gefängnissen entlassen,” Journalisten Watch, September 28, 2022 (thanks to Medforth):

The German judicial system makes it possible:

Between January of this year and the end of next year, 79 Islamists are expected to be released from German prisons. These include 34 suspects and convicts of terrorist and other Islamist crimes and 45 suspects and convicts of other crimes who are considered or suspected of being Islamists. This emerges from a response from the federal government to a small question from the Union faction in the Bundestag, about which the “Welt” reports in its Wednesday edition.

IS fighters are among the released prisoners. According to the federal government, twelve people were imprisoned in Germany at the beginning of this year who took part in combat operations by the Islamic State (IS), were trained in the use of weapons, carried out or prepared attacks for IS, or were trained in the use of explosives. Since January 1, 2022, two of these people have been released after serving their sentences, and three more people from this group are expected to be released by December 31, 2023.

The answer to the small inquiry also shows that twelve people from the Islamist spectrum have been deported to their country of origin since the beginning of this year. The domestic political spokesman for the Union parliamentary group, Alexander Throm, told the “Welt”: “We call on the federal government to take immediate measures to control Islamist threats as well as possible after their release from prison.” The forthcoming releases represent a “not represents an insignificant security risk,” said the CDU politician.

“Against these ticking time bombs, the governing coalition must also introduce subsequent preventive detention for offenders who have become further radicalised during their time in prison.” CDU interior politician Throm further demanded: “In addition, the instrument of preventive detention must be extended in time to a maximum duration of one month with the possibility of extension to two months.”
