ERFURT. The Bundeswehr has filed complaints about unsustainable conditions for asylum seekers in Erfurt. They write of repeated sexual harassment and men urinating on the floors, in an internal report by the leading sanitation officers of the Territorial Task Commando that has been labeled ‘classified’.
In the document the appointed custodial sanitation medic of the Bundeswehr reports that “the halls are being cleaned twice a day. Yet the condition of the floors is not OK in my view, because garbage is being thrown on the floors over and over again. It is routine for men to urinate in whatever corner they find. In the sleeping accommodations it has become a daily occurrence that single women are being urinated on by male persons from other countries, even as the women are sleeping. Sexual harassment occurs daily.”
Bundeswehr Confirms Report
The Bundeswehr has confirmed the authenticity of the report to Junge Freiheit. “This report exists,” says the leading authority of the Territorial Task Commando of the Bundeswehr, Lieutenant-Colonel, Ingo Kunze. At this time there is an investigation into who reported these conditions.
“Should the conditions in this facility indeed be as alleged in the report, then the responsibility for such conditions lies with the operators of the facility under their healthcare system.”
State Administration Does Not Know of Such Incidents
Within the Thüringer State Administration that is responsible for the facility in Erfurt, such conditions are a surprise. “Up until now we have not heard of any such incidents,” says the spokeswoman for the Administration when Junge Freiheit asked her. However, on location it is the Red Cross that is caring for the Asylum seekers. “They are the ones running that operation,” says the spokeswoman.
The Mass hall was converted two weeks ago into a refugee facility. At the moment, according to the Thüringer State Administration, it holds 760 asylum seekers. “But this is only temporary, because the hall will be needed for Mass again,” says the spokeswoman.
