A Syrian immigrant in Düsseldorf was recently discovered to have been a mass murderer back home. The former member of the Al-Nusra Front came to Germany seeking asylum — and was granted it.

Düsseldorf — Yesterday’s news jarred Düsseldorf: investigators arrested an alleged war criminal on Wednesday evening.
Abdalfatah H. A. (35) allegedly murdered 36 people in the war in Syria. Incredible — the terrorist and his family live in a shelter for the homeless in Düsseldorf inconspicuously!
The Federal Prosecutor accuses Abdalfatah H. A. of executing a so-called “Sharia Death Sentence” on 36 government workers. Together with a second man (arrested in Hesse) he allegedly belonged to the Al-Nusra Front terror militia.

According to Spiegel Online, the Syrian entered Germany as an asylum seeker. BILD learned that he was even granted asylum in Eastern Germany. From there, the man moved to Düsseldorf at his own request.
As he was not a refugee, but an accepted asylum seeker, he was rated as homeless and could only live in an appropriate shelter. He arrived at the institution near the main train station Düsseldorf in 2016. He was registered with a real passport and received unemployment benefits.
Wednesday evening, Abdalfatah H. A. was arrested not in his accommodation, but at a train platform in the main train station by plainclothes policemen. A SWAT team was alerted, but it is not clear if they intervened. Yesterday both Abdalfatah H. A. and the suspect from Hesse were presented to a committing magistrate at the Federal Court of Justice in Karlsruhe.

Disturbing: Both fought in Syria under the command of another terror suspect who was arrested last year for being involved in the planning of a terror attack on the old town of Düsseldorf.
