German police and judiciary have accused Hamburg Justice Minister Till Steffen of delaying the release of pictures of the Christmas market attacker Anis Amri because he was worried about provoking “racist” comments on Facebook.
Parliamentary leader André Trepoll, who is a member of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party, called “Scandalsenator” Steffen a “security risk” for delaying the search for the world’s most wanted man.
Accusing the Hamburg justice minister of “fetishising” data protection, Trepoll added: “Green data protection fetishism should not delay the public search for a terror suspect.”
It is alleged that he only released images after a 12-hour delay following a call from German newspaper Bild.

I would like to see a time table for his travel and when the pics were released. The info on the papers that were 'found' was extremely odd and took a long time to get to the public.
Something is going on here, and it stinks.
