Kurd from Afrin dies in fire while wrongfully jailed in Germany

By Znar Shino 16/10/2018
-
A young Kurdish man died from a fire in a German prison after being wrongfully detained.

Amed was from Afrin, northern Syria, and accused of committing sexual harassment.

German police mistook him for Amedy G, a man from Mali who was wanted by police for a robbery in Hamburg.

The death of Ahmed has drawn attention in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

The public prosecutor in the city of Cleves said multiple authorities now are involved in the case

"We are now launching an investigation against six policemen... We are now keen to find out who has made the mistake and where the issue initially started leading to the wrongful arrest," said Senior Public Prosecutor Gunter G. Naifer. 

The interior ministry has apologized to the family of the victim.

Sonja Bongers, a member of the state parliament, described the incident as a 'judicial scandal' for Germany.

Mali, Morroco, Algeria, Libya, west sahara are the countries to avoid, people from these countries are the worst.

I told you Germans give a shit about who you are. For them a Kurd is the same like a Turk or Isis whatever scumbag there is. They are pure nazi breed wired for fascism. This guy he called them through the jail phone beside that fact he was not an black and they jailed him nevertheless, they just switched that phone off when he called for help. German Police are Nazis as well as their teachers and actually every third of them is a fascist worst are the german Professors and their assistants. Perfect deceptive breed perfectly for folling the drug addicted Yankees.

The Germans built a brand new terrorist mosque for the Turks in cologne so that they can recruit more conveniently mentally restarted people to commit terrorist attacks on german soil like it happened last week in cologne! And at the same time harboring Isis terrorists like they were the most loyal and innocent citizens while discriminating exploiting and killing innocent Kurds and criminalize them to conform the the Turks and the Isis terrorists. I think Germans might be psychopaths or exactly know what they are doing because they are Isis too. ss is almost exactly Isis

Jee, if Germany is so bad, why are so many Kurds coming to Germany as refugees. Bad Nazis, right, but good enough to feed and house you?

The name of this town has always been "Kobani." I challenge anyone to show me the evidence that the false name "Kobane" existed before 2011.
Kobane or Kobani? History won't care, but some locals will
