Meanwhile social meltdown in France continues
Less than a month after a damning report emerged that a high-ranking police officer has alleged that his seniors tried to strike the word rape from an internal police report after the mass sexual assaults in Cologne over New Year, Germany is gripped in a new sexual assault scandal involving refugees. Eighteen German women have filed police complaints saying they were sexually assaulted at a musical festival in Darmstadt. Police arrested three refugees from Pakistan at the scene after three of the women immediately reported their attacks.
According to Die Welt, the sexual assaults are reported to have taken place at the Schlossgrabenfest music festival in the city of Darmstadt, near Frankfurt, on Saturday night. The festival in Darmstadt took place over four days and attracted some 400,000 revelers.
Phone and online survey shows a 52-48 split in favour of leaving the EU as referendum campaign gathers steam
A VOTE for Brexit in the upcoming European Union referendum could be the first step in the dismantling of the entire EU, experts have predicted.
Growing Eurosceptic factions in countries such as Denmark, Czech Republic and Poland could force similar referendums across the bloc if Britons choose to severe ties with Brussels fat cats in June.
Antonio Barroso, senior vice-president of political risk consultancy at Teneo Intelligence believes a British rejection of Eurocrats in June could lead the “disintegration” of the EU.
He said: “The main concern is that an unexpected exit of the UK from the EU could lead to similar initiatives in other member states, making Brexit the first step towards the disintegration of the union.”
Mr Barroso warned that Denmark could be the next nation to quit the bloc due to the prominence of eurosceptic Danish People’s Party (DF).
Not having to contribute to the EU budget will mean an immediate cost reduction of around €180 per person in the UK, raising the prospect of tax reductions that could benefit businesses
Legislation: We wouldn't be bound by the European Parliament, which is considered by many to be undemocratic. This is because its Commission which proposes legislation is not directly elected
Crime fighting: The European arrest warrant helps us fight against cross-border crime, allowing the police to bring justice without drawn-out extradition procedures
He added: “Brexit could embolden the increasingly popular DF to push for its own referendum project.
“The DF may at the very least further limit the pragmatic Venstre party's room for manoeuvre on EU issues.”
The right-wing Danish People’s Party, which has in the past called for the EU to have less influence over Denmark’s affairs, is currently the second largest party in the country’s parliament.
Denmark has already rejected calls for Brussels to have more control.
In 2000, 53 per cent of voters chose not to join the Eurozone, while last December Denmark chose to retain its exemption from certain EU rules such as asylum and border control.
Speaking about the Czech Republic, Mr Barroso said: “A potential constitutional change may enable several opposition parties to push for a referendum."
And the latest from Syria – an accusation by the Turks of the Russians
Turkey blames Russia for airstrikes in Syrian province of Idlib, MoD denies allegations
The Russian Defense Ministry has rejected allegations that the Russian Air Force delivered airstrikes on Idlib city, Syria. Reuters earlier reported that Russian airstrikes targeted a number of sites in the city, including one next to a hospital.
The Department of State did not back the accusations that Russian jets were responsible for airstrikes that killed at least 23 people in Syria’s Idlib province, and said the US was working with Russia to figure out what happened.
“We’re still looking into what happened in Idlib. We don’t have a great sense of complete knowledge here of who’s responsible,” State Department spokesman John Kirby told reporters Tuesday.
“We’re going to continue to work closely – inside the cessation of hostilities task force – with the Russians to try to figure out what happened here, and we’ll take it from there,” Kirby said. “Obviously, the images coming out of Idlib are very troubling. Obviously, the killing of innocent civilians is a violation of the cessation of hostilities, period.”
Up to 28 people, including seven children, were killed in overnight airstrikes in Idlib on Monday, according to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The SOHR blamed Russia for the “heaviest bombardment there since a cessation of hostilities was agreed in February,” according to Reuters, claiming that one of the bombing sites was next to a hospital.
The Russian Defense Ministry rejected the пallegations.
German authorities exert pressure on politicians, public figures, businessmen and athletes who want to visit Crimea, German politician and head of the German party "Unity" Dmitry Rempel confessed during a press conference in Simferopol.
According to him, entrepreneurs and politicians are subject to pressure from several German agencies.
"Some business representatives who traveled with us had to undergo various check-ups, while their bank accounts were closed. Students were told that this trip might mean the end of their student careers," Rempel said, adding that similar measures applied to hockey players who joined the delegation.
According to the latest data, some members of the delegation were forced to abandon their trips to avoid losing their jobs
