Nearly two-thirds of the reports concerned discrimination on race or religion. "This is undoubtedly a result of the refugee problem", says Titus Fisher , director of MiND in the AD. The hotline is investigating whether there is arrived at reports of criminal group discrimination. If so, we ask that website to delete the message. Usually this happens .
