There have been a total of 45 arson attacks against “refugee shelters” since January this year, Münch said, adding that the tempo of attacks was now speeding up. This averages out at one every two days.
In 2015, there were a total of 173 arson attacks “with a right-wing background”—which also averages out at one every two days.
“We are concerned that the intensity of the violence is increasing,” he said. “The perpetrators are predominantly male and nearly 80 percent come from the place where the offense was committed.”
He said that there are currently no indications of any formal “right-wing” organizations which are organizing the attacks on the invader centers, and that the perpetrators all appeared to be locals acting out of anger.
“However, we do see that there is a risk that terrorist organizations could be forming,” he said. “We cannot exclude this possibility and take the threat very seriously.”
Münch also expressed his “concern” about the “increasing verbal violence on the Internet,” revealing that the police are currently investigating no less than 3,000 such thought crimes.
“The number of offenses that we have registered in 2015 here has tripled in one year and currently stands at about 3,000 cases,” he said. Read More
Sexual assault by Muslim taxi driver might have been avoided if the victim had taken her Mother’s advice about never riding in the front seat with a Muslim driver.
Herald Sun A MELBOURNE court has heard a young woman could have avoided being sexually assaulted by her MUSLIM taxi driver if she had taken her mother’s advice to sit in the back of the cab like other women. (Sorry to burst your bubble, mama, but that probably wouldn’t have saved her either)
“She sat in the front seat … she was advised by her mum not to do that,” barrister Ben Mallick, acting for driver Omar Hassan, told the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court.
“She can avoid this happening by doing what other women do … by sitting in the back seat.” (Not necessarily) The point was rejected by Magistrate Andrew Capell and Mr Mallick agreed not to press it.
To add insult to injury, however, Hassan was spared an immediate term of imprisonment for three counts of indecent assault after Mr Capell heard he suffered from post traumatic stress disorder.
Hassan, 42, was found guilty in February of attacking the young woman he was driving home. During the hearing, the court heard it took Victoria Police more than 18 months to lay charges because of a lack of resources.
