Austrian Vice Chancellor and leader of the populist Freedom Party (FPÖ) Heinz-Christian Strache has released new figures showing that asylum seekers made up 45.9 per cent of all criminals in Austria with foreign backgrounds in 2016.

Mr. Strache made the announcement Wednesday stating that the figures come from a new government report which looks at security issues from 2016. Interior Minister Herbert Kickl, also a prominent member of the FPÖ, said that the new Austrian coalition government would respond to the figures by further tightening asylum policy, Kronen Zeitung reports.

Mr. Kickl said that the number of foreign suspects in criminal cases had increased by 13 per cent in 2016 and that foreigners were suspects in 40 per cent of all crimes in Austria.

The minister threw his support behind swifter deportation procedures for asylum seekers who had failed in their asylum claims and justified the new policy that would allow the government to examine the mobile phones of migrants in order to determine their country of origin and their identity.
