AN INTELLIGENCE expert has blasted Angela Merkel after a truck ploughed into a busy Christmas market, killing at least nine people.
Professor Anthony Glees, of the University of Buckingham, spoke to Sky News in the aftermath of the tragedy in Berlin and warned the German chancellor would be held “personally responsible” for the incident following her open door policy on migrants.
He said repercussions would be “enormous” if it turned out to be a terrorist attack and if the perpetrator is a migrant “admitted” to Germany.
“If it is the case that this is a terrorist attack – as at the moment we believe it to be but of course we must wait for hard evidence – it is not only unlikely it is a lone person acting in this way – part of a network is much more likely,” he said.
The academic who leads up his university’s Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies predicted there could be backlash following the incident.
He said: “It’s a prime duty of a state to deliver security to its citizens. If you open the borders of a state and you let people in who want to do you harm then your government will be rightly held to account.
