Angry scenes on the Munich subway.
THE nationalities of three young migrants, accused of behaving aggressively towards a woman and two pensioners on a Munich subway train, have been released on February 4.
Despite their apathetic response on first hearing about the allegations, when video footage owner Tom Roth called to inform them on February 2, German Police began an investigation into the aggressors.
The three men, aged 19, 20 and 23 are said to be Afghan asylum seekers who have been living in Germany for four years, despite their asylum applications being repeatedly rejected.
Police spokesperson Sven Muller, told reporters: “A lot of people who have come here from war zones, from Iraq, Afghanistan or Somalia, can’t be sent back when their asylum requests are denied because it’s too dangerous.”
Press reports suggest that witnesses at the scene described how one of the migrants on the train had spat on the floor in the vicinity of an elderly lady’s feet. The woman, who was carrying a walking cane, was then ‘groped’ as she tried to move to a different seat. The disrespectful youths also tried to trip her up.
The likelihood of the three men receiving adequate punishment for their actions is slim. Mr Muller explained that no specific crime has been committed, with the best-case scenario being the migrants will be “fined 200 euros.”
