In a documentary about the mass sex attacks on New Year’s Eve, tax-funded public broadcaster Norddeutscher Rundfunk (NDR) has portrayed the criminals as white Germans. The piece concluded by saying that the “losers” of the night’s attacks were wrongly-accused migrants, their families and women who were assaulted.

The NDR documentary begun by noting that 400 of the sexual assaults, which took place on New Year’s Eve in Germany this year, happened in Hamburg. Focusing on Hamburg Police’s response to the attacks, it looked at how they were able to investigate the attacks.

This week, an article accompanying the documentary reported that by May six suspects, all migrants, had been arrested. Of these, one man has been acquitted while the others wait on remand.
