Muslim ‘refugees’ should be SHOT if necessary, says controversial German politician
German border police should shoot at refugees entering the country illegally, the head of far-right party Alternative for Germany (AfD) has said.
Frauke Petry’s remarks have been condemned by politicians and a police union chief, who said firing at refugees would be a suspension of the rule of law.
Officers must “use firearms if necessary” to “prevent illegal border crossings”, Ms Petry told the regional newspaper Mannheimer Morgen in an interview.
She called for more checks at external EU borders, agreements with neighbouring Austria and “border security systems” to curb the influx of refugees.
A recent poll showed 11 per cent support for AfD, which would make the eurosceptic, right-wing populist party the third strongest in the country.
The comments have been strongly condemned by the head of the police union GdP.
“No policeman would be ready to fire” at refugees, Joerg Radek said. “We have already seen that over the course of German history and we don’t ever want to go down that road again.”
