1,000 ‘TREA­SON’ COM­PLAINTS

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

BER­LIN: More than 1,000 crim­i­nal com­plaints for high trea­son have been filed against Ger­man Chan­cel­lor An­gela Merkel since the height of the refugee cri­sis in 2015, re­ports said yes­ter­day. Most of the com­plaints come from sup­port­ers of the right-wing Al­ter­na­tive for Ger­many party, Mannheimer Mor­gen daily said. Merkel’s de­ci­sion to let in one mil­lion asy­lum seek­ers in 2015 and 2016 sent sup­port for her Chris­tian Demo­cratic Union party into a nose­dive but her sup­port has re­cov­ered as new ar­rivals have dwin­dled. – AFP
