German authorities and media outlets attempted to cover up details of a sexual-assault spree by Arab and North African migrants on New Year’s Eve.

It took roughly 200 policemen to quell chaos started last Friday by thousands of migrants at Cologne Central Station. Huffington Post Deutschland detailed one major problem: Elites with their hands on the levers of power stymied efforts to identify perpetrators.

Reporter Anabel Schunke said Monday that officials initially told cops to expect 400 migrants involved in brawls, unauthorized use of fireworks, and sexual assaults at the train station. The real number was closer to 2,000, the website reported.

“The media’s handling of this issue is a slap in the face for every victim,” Schunke said, adding that television stations declined to give descriptions of suspects.

A civilian investigator told the reporter not to expect justice for Cologne’s rape victims anytime soon.

“You know full well that nothing will happen to them in Cologne,” the source said. “The judiciary is lax and uses legal tricks in order to drag out asylum procedures.”

Colone’s Chief of police, Wolfgang Albers, confirmed 80 crimes perpetrated by gangs of migrants during New Year’s Eve festivities, 35 of which were sexual attacks, Der Express reported Sunday.

“The crimes have been committed by a group of people who mostly come from the North African and Arab countries,” Albers said at a news conference, the newspaper reported. He said five suspects who were arrested had been issued official immigration paperwork.

News of the Cologne cover-up comes less than one week since Bild, Germany’s largest daily newspaper, said officials were conducting a campaign of deception on a national scale.

The newspaper said drug lords are also attempting to recruit many of Germany’s 1.1 million new migrants, but officials have been ordered not to disseminate “alarming” news.

A spokesman for Cologne’s police union told Breitbart London that migrants were bringing with them a “new dimension” of crime.

“This is something we have not known,” the spokesman said Monday.

If Germany MP Steffan Bilger was ordered to keep quiet by Chancellor Angela Merkel, then he broke ranks on Monday.

“It can’t go on like this,” Bilger tweeted in regards to Germany’s migrant crisis. “Urgently needed: reduction of influx, secure borders, intensifying of deportations and meaningful justice.”
