Minister accused of cover-up in Cologne sexual assaults
The government of North Rhine-Westphalia was under fire on Wednesday for an alleged attempt to remove the word "rape" from the first police reports about mass sexual assaults in Cologne on New Year's Eve.
Cologne's Express newspaper alleges that the NRW interior ministry put pressure on a senior police officer to remove the word "rape" from an internal report issued on New Year's Day.
"KHK [the police officer involved] told me that the state control centre wanted the report cancelled and the expression "rape" deleted," a document written by another police officer and reproduced by Express read.
