New Year’s Eve Migrant Sex Attackers Shown As White Men In Documentary

In a documentary about the mass sex attacks on New Year’s Eve, tax-funded public broadcaster Norddeutscher Rundfunk (NDR) has portrayed the criminals as white Germans. The piece concluded by saying that the “losers” of the night’s attacks were wrongly-accused migrants, their families and women who were assaulted. The NDR documentary begun by noting that 400 of the sexual assaults, which took place on New Year’s Eve in Germany this year, happened in Hamburg. Focusing on Hamburg Police’s response to the attacks, it looked at how they were able to investigate the attacks. This week, an article accompanying the documentary reported that by May six suspects, all migrants, had been arrested. Of these, one man has been acquitted while the others wait on remand. Consisting of multimedia slides, the documentary focused on three of the cases. The first it showed was that of Tunisian suspect, Adel K. A witness identified him as a suspect, from a photograph of the night, after recognising his distinctive hat. One of the slides showed a photograph of Adel K. at one point of the evening, in a crowd with several other migrant men. The next slide featured a video of the suspect denying the charges.
