Berlin (dpa / bb) – The police’s findings on organized crime in Berlin are today a topic in the interior committee of the House of Representatives. It is about figures from the State Criminal Police Office (LKA) that are no longer so up-to-date and the figures from Germany for 2019 – the item on the agenda was postponed last year and is only now being dealt with.
Further topics are the new and already extensively discussed demonstration law and a dropout program for criminal members of clans of Arab origin.
According to the LKA report, which has already been published, 56 proceedings against organized crime gangs involving a total of 432 suspects were conducted in 2019. Eleven cases were directed against members of clans. Four times it was about theft and burglary, four more times about drug trafficking and smuggling.
The re were also two other focal points: five investigative complexes against biker crime and seven proceedings against Russian-Eurasian criminals.
Nationwide there were 579 preliminary investigations. Berlin came fourth after North Rhine-Westphalia, Bavaria and Lower Saxony.
