In a speech on Monday, Germany’s Federal Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said “internal security starts at the border.”
In his opening remarks at the annual European Police Congress here in Berlin, the minister highlighted the results of his directive last year to increase security and checks at Germany’s borders.
He said border police had apprehended “several hundred people who were subject to entry bans.”
“You wouldn’t believe it but it’s true,” Seehofer said. “And twice as many people as that were wanted with arrest warrants.”
The theater on Kotbusser Damm has been showing films since 1907, making it one of the oldest cinemas in Germany.
The organizers have set a deadline of March 17 to reach their next funding target of 1.6 million euros.
