[Safety Information] Caution regarding conflicts between drug gangs

July 12, 2024, 11:01 p.m.
Since late June, there have been a series of explosions in the North Rhine-Westphalia cities of Cologne, Engelskirchen and Duisburg. In the early hours of July 11th, an explosion also occurred in the city centre of Dusseldorf.
○Investigative authorities are investigating the series of explosions and the kidnapping that occurred in Cologne last week as being related to a dispute between drug groups with influence in the Netherlands. The explosions have occurred in the center of cities across the state.
It has been reported that planting bombs at locations related to rival groups to instill fear in those involved is a typical tactic used by drug gangs in the Netherlands. Japanese residents and travelers should act with caution if they notice any suspicious objects at the entrance to their apartments or businesses, never touch them, and if the suspiciousness remains unsolved after checking with the landlord and neighbors, report it to the police.
Germany is considered relatively safe overseas, but some statistics show that the crime rate is more than 10 times that of Japan, and criminal groups can easily cross borders to enter and leave Germany, as in this case. Please keep this in mind and take the utmost care to stay safe.
