The decision of German broadcaster ARD not to report about the arrest of an Afghan refugee suspected of raping and murdering a 19-year-old woman in Freiburg caused severe criticism not only among Internet users, but also among politicians.

On Tuesday, head of the Bundestag Committee on Internal Policy Ansgar Heveling that such move made an “unpleasant impression,” especially given the fact that all other media outlets across Germany reported about the rape and the murder of the young woman even before the perpetrator was identified.

“I believe that the decision of Tagesshau (an ARD news program) was wrong. It, of course, made the impression that they didn’t report about the murder due to the fact that the suspect was an underage asylum seeker who entered the country unaccompanied. This is an unpleasant impression,” Heveling told Funke media group.
