The German police in a coordinated action proceed in four states against Clan crime. According to the security officials, around 400 officers of the German Police had searched apartments and business premises of members of Arab families in Rhineland-Palatinate, North Rhine-Westphalia, Saarland and Berlin on Thursday morning.

The raids have been conducted against the smuggling of Syrian refugees to Germany and the Netherlands since August 2018. The investigations revealed that the suspected clan members have embezzled visa labels and thus helped the refugees to enter the country. It is also being investigated for commercial and gang related property offenses.

Earlier, the representatives of security authorities and policymakers met in Berlin to discuss strategies to combat clan crimes. During the meeting it was discussed that a crime phenomenon that could spread over decades, since last year with the necessary political and social support will be fought. Nevertheless, the Berlin Interior Senator Andreas Geisel said that the crime phenomenon needs a long breath.

Sjors Kamstra, a senior public prosecutor in Berlin described that still “the most blatant acts on the open road in front of the camera” would be committed. The clan crime members conveyed the aura that the state could do nothing. Kamstra said old methods of investigation were not enough because the clans manipulated and silenced witnesses with their financial power and threat potential.

Kamstra has demanded better witness protection. Currently, the investigators are focused on objective evidence data from computers and DNA samples. However, the evaluation of the data, due to insufficient staff in Berlin, sometimes takes months or even years.
